    Fuel Pump install...the removal of the pump itself from the assembly can be a bit tricky

    It's been a couple weeks and the Turbosmart bpv is holding boost nicely. Highest psi so far is 20.6. The torque solutions pitch stop adds very minimal cabin noise and helps with shifting during spirited driving...which is daily for me. Love this turbo blanket! Even after hard runs I can rest my hand directly on it and its cool.

    Have you experienced quicker spool up since you added the blanket?

    I've got a Torque Solutions pitch stop I still need to install as well.
