wanting to discuss some simple questions.

what are peoples oil pressure like once their car is turbod? (mine crap)

do you use any kind of restrictor or jet in the oil line to control pressure? (no)

where do you get your wastegate reference from? straight out of turbo, after intercooler or in manifold? (just after turbo)

what PSI spring have you got in waste gate, and what are you actually seeing on the guage?

hot pressure at 2000rpm is about 55psi, idle hot, bout 25-30 with 15w-50 oil

no restrictor in oil feed line since the garrett gt series have the restrictor built into the oil inlet

wastegate reference from plenum

have 7psi spring, will run about 9psi minimum, boost control holds the boost very flat when running anything more than spring pressure
