Smarty boost level less, level 9 too 7?

Do you all notice a boost loss when going from level 9 to 7 (wild torque)? Just a tad of a loss, I just notice it not hittin' 40 psi as fast. I am not running the aftermarket turbo tune, but I am running a Q-zilla boost fooler.

Thoughts?

Will it be different if I lose the zilla boost fooler and DL the aftermarket turbo tunes?

jim, you may be fueling harder than your fuel system can supply on level 9. boost is dependent on burned fuel to spin the turbine and generate boost(which you know)
without the fuel, you wont have the exhaust energy to spin the turbo

Thanx guys. Will my results be any different if I removed the boost fooler and loaded the aftermarket turbo tune?


Thanx for sharing guys.
