Just to clear up some earlier confusion for you guys.

Yes there is a way to do pressure testing on your system and it can be made completely with parts from home depot and an air compressor...

secondly, you will boost higher and longer in the higher gears (4,5...) then 1st and second because the engine is under a heavier load. it has nothing to do with the programming or not getting the turbo to spool up all the way. the engine has no problem getting the small ko3 turbo spooled up completely by ~3.5k rpms at the latest. and running 20 psi spikes on our engines with the ko3 will not by any means ruin the engine. they have been proven to run 30+psi consistently without doing anything to the blocks. if you are running that much boost though you obviously have a bigger turbo and with that new rods...

and the n75 valve is controlled by the ecu to control the waste gate. so if your programming is for 17 psi then it will go to 17 psi before opening the waste gate. upgrading the n75 will only help smooth things out at higher boost levels and/or delay that signal allowing a little more boost over the rev range (usually about ~1psi extra)

also the files do have the ability to change. Look up lemmiwinks. You can tune the car through your obd2 port.

wow - you just floored me. that is some seriously great information.
I can change the boost levels and things of that nature myself??
that'd be fun - i see myself blowing up my engine shortly!
lol
thank you for the information sir, very helpful

well you always can change the boost level manually as well.

first you would need a diode mod. this basically is a little cheat where you put a diode inline between your MAP sensor and the ecu so it only reads a certain amount no matter how much boost your actually making then you can get a manual boost controller and set the boost to whatever you want it to.

and with turning up the boost you'll probably break the k03 turbo before you hurt your block to tell the truth.

but i don't think you would necessarily want to go above the programming of the chip because the chip is designed to safely boost that high with it's timing, and fuel trims without creating any knock in the engine. start going above that without adding a knock suppressor and you run the risk of messing up your engine. so there are many more ways to make your same boost give you more power by making it more efficient.
