Picture makes it looks like there top is runny and patchy, but it's just the light. And paint isn't cured yet so that's why it's so shiny.

So, totally random, and only applicable to a couple of members on here.
But I was talking to Turbosmart regarding a product, and in talking came to the topic of springs for supercharger bypass valves/bovs. I have a a 0-4 inHg spring in my turbosmart raceport, which basically means it starts to shut at 4inHg and is fully shut at 0. Reason I had this is that I wanted the bypass open unless I was boosting obviously, being a supercharger and all.
Anway, they told me they thought it was the wrong spring based on my vacuum. I am pulling 16ish inHg vacuum at idle. They told me to try the 10inHg spring which I already had as part of the kit I bought. That spring is rated 10-7inHg. Reason being, you base your bypass spring rate via your engine vacuum. It will give you better throttle response they said.

So anyway, I put the 10inHg spring in, and wow! It has changed the car completely. Anything above 50% throttle is just instantly into boost. Before I had a bit of a lag time before it hit. Now it just starts as soon as my foot is down. The bypass is still open at idle, and is still open up to about 50 % throttle, which is perfect. Feels so much quicker, and the wheels chirp now.

Anyway, like I said, only applicable to a couple of guys on here(who probably already know this and are thinking "what a tit!"), but hey, you learn something every day. They said to only use the 4inHg spring if you motor was making 8inHg vacuum or lower.
