OK, refitted the IC and took out for a nice pull in 3rd and registered .8 bar, seems to be working. I am guessing that because this IC flows a lot more air than stock, not sure this 3LDZ turbo can generate enough boost to compensate for the additional flow?? Just interesting as it does drive differently, spools up at 4K vs. 3K, pulls hard then falls off a cliff at around 5500RPM's. Looking forward to matching this IC with a more modern turbo shortly (I'm getting Sand_man's left overs). Also, any suggestions on what type of mechanical boost gauge I should be looking at?
