hi all just bought a manual boost controller (go fast bits atomic i think its called) an was just wondering how to set it up? i thought i set it up right but was only getting 5psi an i have a 7psi spring in my wastegate even tho i adjusted it 3 times. so was hopin someone could post a pic to help me out? also just recently im getting this wierd BOV (not running one) sound as if i have a piping leak, but ive tightened all my piping an i still hit full boost? after hitting full boost an you take your foot off the accelerator it will dose then turn into a BOV/releasing air sound it is wierd an has me stump so thought i would ask the experts lol thanks

Not running a BOV isn't what is causing the problem is it?

I remember reading something once that not running a BOV causes this weird fluttering noise when changing gears... Something to do with compressed air hitting the compressor wheel and is supposed to be really bad for it... Just can't remember what they called it now... Has some special name... Someone will pop in shortly who knows what I am on about...
