boost

now that I have everything installed for my edge juice with attitude I was wondering if 20lbs of boost is the most they are supposed to put out. it's an 01 auto so it doesn't have the elbow to be installed on the turbo. is there anything I can do to get more boost..? the tranny is built and the fuel pressure stays constant now that I put in the holley blue. the egts only get above 1350 on level 5..

I'm pushing 24 with nothing done to the charger and a EZ. You should be able to get 35 with a boost elbow.

You need more fuel. More boost without more fuel will hurt, not help you. Time to get rid of the sotck injectors.

He should still be seeing more boost then that though with the Juice all the way up. You will have to get a J-Hook for the charger I believe. Mine is the same way but I want to upgrade chargers.

A turnbuckle will do the same thing.
