Rob, Aron, and Levon, what spring pressure are you running in your gates, and what's your target boost?

Edit: I had mine set up with 19lbs worth of spring. Took the car out last night and it only opened for about 200rpm near 5000rpm in second and third gear. Took it out again just now and the wastegate didn't even open in first and I hit fuel cut (which is set at about 25psi relative). So, I'll be stepping down spring weight, but I'm not sure how low I should go? I also had a couple questions about the wastegate installation. You guys have my number, so if one of you would give me a call that would be awesome.

I'm assuming I have an leak somewhere because the turbo takes til about 5k to hit full boost now, and seems to taper of pretty quickly. I know the headers will make me lose spool, but deleting the TGV assemblies and running the EWG should have nullified that loss... Hopefully it just needs to be tuned.
