Thanks for the clarification on holding boost. I noticed that with stock, if I'd press the gas and let off I could hear the blow-off. Now that's gone and there's a more linear throttle response after shifting into the next gear.

Here's another pic of the wheels - full thread here which I posted just yesterday!
