Overboost

.8 spring w/ BB headers and Tial 46mm,w/ Zork tube.

With the below listed mods, the most recent being the B6 intercooler, fuel solenoid and Zork, I am overboosting in 3rd and even 4th. I am sure 2nd will be even easier to overboost I just haven't rung it out in 2nd recently. It is also a factor of the weather, when it's cold it happens easy.

Yesterday (25F), 4th gear WOT it overboosted at about 115. Later when it warmed up (35F) at about 120 or so. Now I am glad I am getting full boost and the car is pulling well....but it is causing me to short shift or run one gear higher so I don't overboost.

I am thinking of going with a softer spring and installing an EBC set right at 1 bar....any thoughts. By the way AFRs are good (safety wise) IMO. I run 13.5 -14.00 at a nice speedy highway cruise and drop into mid-high 11's real quick under full boost.
