Quit comparing boost values from Evos to our cars and saying that our engines run low boost.

Go boost a Toyota Corolla LS and see that the con. rods on those engines begin to twist at 6psi. Now all of a sudden N54 running 14.5psi is insane amount of boost.

Long story short: boost values should not be used for comparing engines. Period!

OP: nice video. I hope you sort out that misfire problem of yours soon!
I'm a bit tired of repeating that

What you missed though is mentioning CFM (volume of air coming out) and how psi with smaller turbos doesn't equal psi on bigger running 13.5-14psi with RBs is about a 50-70whp difference from stock turbos with lower EGTs...there's a lot to be said...
