Re: help plz

Re: help plz

get a laptop, obd lead and do a bit of logging,
See what boost it says you are achieving, you may be getting a lot of knock and its protecting the engine or something,
Is your HKS a genuine one ?
If you have the standard DV its always worth throwing back on to rule it out.
