Looks to be an ignition box. Likely to ****** the timing as the boost climbs.

No they didn't but it's only had one owner and the only apparent mods are the blower, 5.0 pro shorts shifter, after market exhaust which sounds pretty damn nice, boost and pressure gauges and that's about it. Everything else is stock. What kind of numbers would u guys guess?

What's the max boost you're seeing? That would help.

Umm the couple times that I've floored it I haven't payed much attention to the gauge. But tomorrow I will find out how can I tell if the gauges are accurate though? Its -20 at idle and goes to about -10 when I drive without pushing it hard

So you're saying it sits at -20psi of vacuum at idle, then -10psi of vacuum at normal speeds? The only way to tell will be if you floor it and see what it climbs to.

Re: back again with new car

the best advise is to get it dyno'ed to ensure its all good to go and safe

I got a friend who owns a smog shop he's got the rollers and everything. U guys think they can dyno it there and get me some numbers? I ask because I've never heard him say he's done that for people
