We have several single turbo 6AT cars, running well over 20psi for several months. And no issues to report.

Is your modification of the TCU something that people WITHOUT a single turbo could benefit from? I would think that would be the case but propbably even more benefot with a single turbo. Could you also elaborate on what you are trying to change in the TCU? Thanks.

By the way,...impressive results for a 6AT.
