This is why I wanted to purchase a different actuator. I wanted a 9 psi or 11 psi actuator so my tuner could create a low pressure break-in map. The old 18g had a 9 psi actuator, so it seemed reasonable to me that an 11 psi actuator on a similar turbo would not be too outrageous of a request.
Very true you paid good money for a product, "CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS RIGHT" a saying thats been around for some time now.
