no issues up to 27 anything over that and you should be looking to upgrade to atleast a 20g those that are cranking it up to 30 lets just say everyone we have done after about 8 runs serious issues

It seems that over 24psi is where people are having issues. I've been at 24psi (spikes to 25psi sometimes) for a good bit now and not had any problems. It's all in the tune.

That is what I was going to ask. I would assume it leans out with that kind of boost.

No, no....

Crank it up to 100psi, take it to the track, then after a couple runs it will blow up. Then just drop a 327 crate in it with a RWD conversion and run twin turbo set up with just a measly 6 psi....

Just my two cents and if I had the money.
