Busy day yesterday. I had the secondary cats removed and Vibrant resonators installed. Love the sound now.

Also meet with Shawn, the owner of the DAW turbos. He seemed to know Turbos very well. I did ask about the 3.5" exhaust and he said I would gain power and drop weight and that he tested it on the Dyno. I never saw numbers though but have no reason not to believe him.

My new turbos are scheduled to be installed October 2nd and 3rd.

You should get some photos of the shop, equipment, etc. Add some credibility for him here
From business perspective sometimes less is more and customers that are skeptical like that are not worth the sale. Also pics don't mean anything yes it may grow sales fast but it's better to not explode cause that's usually what ruins things .

Yeah I don't think he is that interested in making a lot of sales. At one point he mentioned he should be selective on who he sells Turbos to. Almost like he has been burned before but I am just going off speculation.

The shop was full of all kinds of performance parts like injectors, turbo pipping and it was pretty clean as well. There was lots of Audi's, Subi's, VW's, and Bimmers there and they do have there own Dyno.

I think that is because he hasn't been able to fulfill some orders in the time frame he advertises on his website and people don't like that. I ordered my stage 4s July 30th still waiting.

I am chasing a boost leak. Took the car back to the shop that installed the Turbos and they did a smoke test up to 20psi and didn't see anything.
Right around 17psi boost target stays and boost falls off. Maybe I should replace my boost solenoids?
I am having the same problem with newly installed turbos. Boost drops off around 5500 rpm and it falls flat on its face. I have already pressure tested, smoked tested it, did new boost solenoids and still no cigar. Next thing I'm going to do is have a shop pry open the head and check out the cam ledge bearings.

Looks like it happens around 5200 ish
Seems about right for spoolling I would think since it is around 17psi

@RNM what does the cam ledge bearings do or show? I don't comprehend.
I wouldn't bother it has to be something to do with the actual turbos themselves. I know multiple people with DA turbos that have this issue where chasing down so many problems to just figure out it was the turbos

I'm not sure I follow you. How could it be the Turbos? It's mechanical so you accelerate, create spool, it will spool as long as it has a seal.
Just trying to understand.
