i have an extreamly hard time believing that the charger blew because of 30 psi...probably snapped shaft cuz let out to quick and woofed charger

it all depends on the hot shut downs and the quality of oil that you run.

:agree2: That's what you get when you have a fully closed wastegate and you dump the throttle at WOT under hard acceleration.:thud:
All the built up pressure has to go somewhere, and it can't go out through the wastegate like it would normally.

anything over 30-35 psi the drive pressures will be through the roof....and it's out of it's MAP and all's your doing is creating heat

So how do I not let out of it quick with a 5 Speed? I have been thinking about a blowoff valve, but do I really need one?

How does the intake charge get to the exhaust side to go through the wastegate in the first place without going through the engine?

I think you are thinking of a blow of valve... the wastegate just limits compressor/turbine speed by limiting drive pressure to the turbo by bypassing the turbine.

5 speeds aren't as bad as autos at scratching the charger when you let off....not for sure why but i would have to guess because you can shove the clutch in....anyone else?

Wonder what my drive pressure was when I hit almost 60psi.... hmm, I just had my boost elbow cranked down way too far, then hit the TST and boost was through the roof!!! It barked a lot more before the upgrade though, thats for sure, dunno why.
