the compressor is a custom design for this setup, it's about the same size as the ones in the 605 kit.

We really don't know what to expect, so everyone should keep their fingers crossed!

What kind of spool up are you getting with the 35r? High dyno numbers are great, but basically what I am asking is what kind of room do you have under the HP/Torque curves? What RPM are you hitting full boost at? (Not meant to be antagonistic, just curious) I rode in a few Evos that were running 35Rs. While once they kicked in, the speed was awesome, the lag for daily driving was ridonculous. They were also running 30+ lbs. of boost, so a lot more to build than the 15-17 psi.

Evo is a small 4 banger. I'm running a 3.2 liter engine, boost builds very quickly at 3,000rpms i'll hit around 10psi, full boost by 3300rpms. Redline is 7200rpms. Obviously if I stomp on it at 2,000rpms there is lag but why woudl I do that? I cruise mostly around 2,500-3,000 in this car. So boost is right there. The hit of the 35r is almost disorienting....its awesome .

so thats 4,000rpms of full boost, more than enough . If i'm actually driving it fast its not out of boost, if i'm cruising boost is only a stab away. Its a handful for daily driving on street tires. The gearing in my car keeps it in the rev band basically automatically even when your not trying. I need a taller rear end gear actually.
