    ditch the bov and cai. they are for our cars. also my turbo shuts down about 6k rpms which is normal. my guess is that its either those mods u listed or driving style or combination of both that is causing the extra loss in spool.

    You need to be waaaaaaaaaay more descriptive on what exactly is happening.Also you cannot hold max boost to redline with the stock turbo.It always tapers down towards redline.
