It seemed that my uppipe might have been cross threaded from the factory maybe, thats what they think at the shop. Im running a slightly larger diameter aftermarket one now, supposedly helps with my spool. They would have had to change the studs in the stock up pipe because they were too short anyways, but apparently not all of them are like that. 750cc injectors should also do you just fine. Im running slightly over 60% if I recall on 20 PSI. Also start looking for some type of better splitter for your IC also, the stock splitter is useless now. Im taking mine off tomorrow, either going to eventually get a zerosports one, or make my own when I have the time to do it in my shop. Try and save up some cash for a 3port BCS and maybe (not absolutely needed) a BPV. I run the Perrin unit, its awesome (a few minor issues, but I have them resolved now, just not going into it here).

Srninjastar if you have any other questions about my setup and the ups and downs of it just PM me.

I have a Blouch TD05H-18G 8cm (all my mods are listed in my profile). I am at only 16PSI (18Gs don't really start to shine until 18PSI+) and hit peak boost by about 3000-3200rpm depending on the gear and hold it until my 7500rpm redline. It also makes 300whp all the way until 7000 rpm. However, I am running Kelford 264/264 cams which definitely helps. Also, I am still running the stock BCS so that probably hurts the boost response a little bit.

Here is my dyno chart for reference:
