if u have it too loose, u might stall on the freeway when ur getting off and u put it in neutral. my car used to do that all the time until i tightened it. if u over-tighten it, it won't let the pressure off. i don't know all the techicalities to it but thats from my experience.

The way we set up my bros type s was to start at a good point, about halfway out, then drive around, and just feel and listen to things. Then adjust if you feel you are loosing boost, or loosen if you hear the turbo fluttering (compressor surge)
