i have a boost controller on my car i have it set at the lowest boost setting which is 10psi and stays on 10psi most of the the time till it starts to revs really hard 7000+ revs it boosts up to 11.9 psi does any one no why its doin it. it is a r32 gst pretty much stock

Probably cause your ecu is trying to protect the motor! Stock turbo can't go past 13, at 14 it will blow the turbo. U got a pretty cheap controller? hence the spikes!

Probably run a few more mod- cooler and turbo back exhaust if u wanna run more than 10, then your ecu needs to be changed or remapped.

U will find the highest boost on redline gear 3!

ok, the turbo won't blow the moment you hit 14psi. i was running my stock turbo on my 33 at 14/15psi for a year and never had an issue. i know people who have run up to 16psi and not had an issue.

as for the ecu stopping it from going any higher, that isn't right either. the ecu has protections in it, but it won't magically stop it going any higher. you can go higher but it will start throwing tantrums. without knowing your setup i couldn't say why it isn't boosting any higher than 13psi. if you still have a stock exhaust then that would explain it, or if you still have a stock cooler, that could also be a contributing factor. or it could be a problem with the controller.

Yeah as mentioned above your ecu wont control boost. your turbo won't blow at exactly 14, could blow at 12 or could last years at 15 it's always a gamble.

Gizzmo controller is not a cheap unit and is a quality bit of gear so i wouldn't worry about that.

the advice to run bigger exhaust and cooler is spot on it never hurts to have more cooling and flow.

Your probably running out of a lot of things, fuel, turbo, spark even.

Try getting your fuel pressure checked, regapping your plugs to 0.8, check your wastegate setting, turbo size?, dump system?

My thought anyway.

just got a brand new walbro fuel pump dont think it would be that

Did you run a separate earth? fi you just replaced your pump and the car is playing up, I'd start there.

PS did it do this before you replaced the pump?

    • I'd say post the dyno sheet so people can look on it, but you already know all dynos are different. I mean 26psi on Petrol/Gasoline seems pretty up there, and if you aren't revving it out then unless your torque is really nosing over, then of course more RPM will equal more HP. If you think E85 will make the difference between 533whp and 600whp the answer is absolutely yes. Given the only thing that makes power is the turbo, and you've got plenty of boost in there, it all seems semi reasonable to me. Curious to see what other people say though. The one thing that never lies is MPH at the drag strip. See what you trap. (ok, it can lie a bit with altitude and conditions etc)
    • Hello again, I have a 1991 r32 gtr that I’ve modified and dynod. The power it gave me was a bit disappointing with 533 wheel horsepower and 444nm torque on a dyno jet dyno. On a heavier dyno it would read to about 433 wheel horsepower. I say disappointing because it currently has : CP oversized 87mm pistons Eagle H beam rods Extended crank with the nitto collar  stock oil pump (nitto on the way) stock sump (leask sump on the way) Garret G35-900 single turbo  ^ With 26psi of boost (1.6 bar) 6boost v band manifold  turbosmart 60mm external wastegate Brian crower 264 cams tomei gaskets all around arp head studs  dual wallbro fuel pumps dw 1050cc injectors greddy radiator metal Intercooler pipes nismo thermostat  offbrand fuel regulator (tomei regulator on the way) ngk 7’s spark plugs (tuner refused to tune with 8’s for my car) Running on a motec m800  I know that running on e85 and opening the rpm to around 8500 instead of my current 7200 will also boost my power yet will it increase a lot or just slight because people like cardoGTR and andrew Hawkin from motive were all running around 600 wheel horsepower on the same setup as mine. Any feedback on what I’m missing?   thanks
    • At the moment still 8mm. 
    • I see what you mean !! 👍 so I drive with E85 AND E100 my cylinder head and full supertech with 270° camshaft and 10.25 lift this weekend I spoke with my mapper and he told me 10 ratio would be even better so I went to set up a setup with : 3.2l crankshaft from expensive spool import with a stroke of 91mm Nitto or IRP connecting rods length 152.5 mm and piston irp ratio of 10 after having the information near spool import the setup did not work because of the crankshaft which is 91 mm  therefore the assembly mounted in the engine block will come out 1mm high above the cylinder head gasket surface so I have to review the construction of the lower engine low IRP is Italian I am French I wanted to limit the costs because as they are in Europe I do not have customs fees to pay 🤷‍♀️
    • Update. Returned yesterday after a two-day venture driving it from Toowoomba, QLD to VIC.  Some bigger shots. However, this was a couple of hours into the rive at a driver reviver stop so you'll need to excuse the bugs across the front and the water from the storm we just escaped.  Looks like at some points both side windows had wind guards and were removed but left behind some kind of silicone or something (?). Any tips on how to remove this stuff appreciated. Noticed the handle for the hood release kind of just fell from its position with nothing fixing it in place to the mount. Looks like two bolts go there. Again, any advice is appreciated. The driver's seat is a Recaro seat in a fixed position (not mounted using the rails, which were in the boot). So the trip one was...more painful than necessary. I'm a bigger guy, so the seat belt was basically tight.  It also has a rip in the seat side closest to the drivers door.  Overall, I'm happy with my purchase.   Now I'm trying to navigate getting the roadworthy and registration here in VIC. Hope it will go well but I know the hood release will need to be fixed for sure.
