please read more carefully. here is a direct quote of what i said.
not sure where you got that one...
first off, i never said i was an authority but to answer your question... my car's never been dyno'd but i'm just above 200 at the wheels based on dyno pulls of cars with the same mods (diff cat back) i 'm running full exhaust w/ one cat, and an EBC w/ various settings. homebrew octane booster is typically done with toulene, which can be picked up at any hardware store in various sizes. many of our CA residents use it to bump their 91 to around 96. run a search, the mixing instructions are located in the performance forum. i do know how to make an adjustable w/g, but it's typically not feasible w/ and internal design like ours. if you're running a tial, there are a few ways to do it the most popular by welding a nut into the wastegate under the spring, then screwing a bolt throug the top of the w/g. you can adjust the bolt manually like an MBC to change the w/g spring pressure.
good enough for you? is this quiz time? how did i do?
LOL. nice try. the only words in your mouth are your own. i didn't mis quote you. maybe you should read your own posts a little better as well as the others. if you notice, you addressed boozted, but never addressed anything in his post. same story there as well.
don't be sorry for trying to help. be sorry for making assumptions about a club you just walked in to, and the people that make it up.
leave what you think at the door, and come in with what you know. welcome to the club.
I apologize and your right
thank you for the welcoming
