what kind of a boost should i be running through my gears and whats the what should be the lowest they drop through till redline......you can see my mods in my profile below!

Right now im spiking a measly twelve in first, wich drops to like 8
Second gear is like 15 dropping to around 8
Third gear around 15/16 then dropping off
Fourth gear a little higher...most 17
same with fifth gear

why am i loosing so much boost, i also have an ecs n75, this could be possiblity my problem?

There's a thread about it in the DIY forum.

Corny or not, it works. Another way is to buy a PVC pipe and stick it in the inlet hose, and get a PVC cap and put a nipple on it so you can hook up an air compressor to it and pressurize the system.

lol looking at my drunk comments from last night!!!....well i did the anti fouler mod, hoping she works, wich she has so far, and also my boost is quite different now.....18lbs average spike, and drops to about 12/13, is that average

That is about right if the 12/13 is in the higher rpms.
