Yea, they're just all around different settings. If I ran settings for cooler weather... I think it would boost completely different. Shawn(when he worked for 1552) said he'd do summer settings since it was about 95 degrees out everyday.

I'll have to record it next time i'm driving at night.

So, still haven't used the MAF cleaner... been lazy. But I was driving around today and decided to record some videos.

Just finally cleaned the MAF sensor, Right before I did my other video, I didn't notice any fluctuation. But i'll keep an eye on it to see if it is a permament fix. Nice little FYI for other k03/k04's

do you have any idea what you boost setting is at? That looks like wastegate dump to me. You might be set too high for these elevations and pissy 91 octane fuel.

Yea I will be honest, I do miss 93 octane pump gas. :( And I figured it'd be something to do with the elevation possibly. For the most part the fluctuation is in 6th gear only.
