I still feel EBC like HKS EVC held the wastegate closed better till full boost with no spikes.
I figured that much... BTW Couple in car videos wouldn't hurt either . I've heard the F23 has a loud spool

I hope that's true!! I was a bit disappointed when I heard a ko4. Thought it'd much louder with the turbo muffler removed.

I cannot wait to see what this thing can do. If I switch I hope my drop in disk holds up...

Thanks for taking the plunge Rotary. You are local so I hope to see or ride in this soon. May be worth trading in the K04.

I think as soon as the programs for this are out, this turbo will be a no brainier for anyone coming from stage 1, 2, or stock. Cheaper than ko4, more powerful than ko4 already! And they're not even trying yet.

So did some logging today. Played with boost and wastegate actuator. Lots of 3rd gear passes. Updates back in first two posts.

The MBC helps with more linear flow, you don't quite have the same spike as before.

Good work with the logs. Looking forward to seeing the first dyno pass.
