ummm......i made my boost elbow lol. i just ground the plate to a 100 and set the govener arm so its flush with the bottom of the plate(not under it) and i didnt really notice a differance? did i do sumthin wrong
:iagree make sure its forward. There should be a noticeable difference in your top end unless something else is limiting you like a plugged filter or bad LP. But w/ stock rpms you wouldn't be getting that high on a #10 anywase so more rpms might help.
Also with my 100 I noticed that if I set the arm flush with the bottom it woulds stick for a minute the jump and start climbing so I set it just a hair above flush and it pulls smoothly now.
well i didnt set it DIRECTLY on the edge of the plate.....i figured it might stick. so i placed it bout .020 or so from the edge and yes the afc is FF. i did notice a better lowend torqe. also i just read that with my #10 and a boost elbow i could see boost levels bout 40 sumthin......is that correct? cuz i only got a 30lbs gauges and dont want to exceed 30lbs cuz after that i aint got no idea wtf is goin on after 30
I can get 40 w/ my boost elbow closed, when its down tight it blocks the wastegate all-together, so I just backed the screw out about 1/2 turn and now I see 35 max so if you back it out a full turn or more you should be able to set it at 28-29 where you can still read it.
You might try shaving the afc arm then adjusting the starwheel and the screw in the back of the afc housing to compensate. W/o shaving the arm sometimes it won't travel far enough and will become the limiting factor.
Can't say on the boost. I only had a 30# gauge like you do, at the time. Run a 60 now. New gauge wasn't in place til after the HX40 was installed. I can tell you I could bury the 30 with the stock boost fitting with just the 10 plate as the only fueling mod.
