33" tires. s300sxe 63-73 compressor 63/80 super core turbine housing 80mm. 83 a/r twin scroll. Pretty sure it's just these sh$t injectors. Wish i could afford to go back to stock.

I've pulled at over 11,000 ft with compounds 20,000+ GVCW, NO smoke even hammering it. Over 14,000 with rig alone, no smoke

Black smoke is wasted fuel and wasted HP.

Look for diesel to hit $4.50 a gal this fall. Saudis and Russian oligarchs are starving.
What would you change on tq management? I am usually around 34psi max boost can get closer to 40 at sea level. No boost leaks.

Tried that. No luck. Nobody can tune around my setup and elevation apparently.
