What kind of boost elbow do you have? Is the type with the little set screw or not? If its adjustable you can screw it in a little at a time and gain more boost. But don't want to exceed 35 PSI that's max for the stock turbo...

If you got a non-adjustable you going to hve to change it got get more...

You could take a pair of vise grips and clamp the rubber hose off and see if the boost will climb more...(This is for HX35 Turbos)

It is the elbow that Edge sends with the Ez. No screw. I just thought it would be higher than that. Where would you find the elbow with screw?
