You need a bigger waste gate, especially in a low boost application. Stock replacement for the 930 is 46mm. You will need to vent more exhaust to sustain 0.5 bar than higher typical 930 levels.
I agree, but I had the OBX stuff ready to fit before I had the stock 930 exhaust ready. One of the drawbacks to having no point of reference on a retrofitted SC. Also, the support is custom, as I have a new Borg Warner with a V-band exhaust, and really can't use a stock 930 support bracket. I am going to try and find a 46 Tial for the stock HE setup. I will say, the Tial 38 worked well on the prior Rajay setup without any boost creep.
