I just installed the ERZ UP/DP combo and I love it! Only thing is the turbo is MUCH louder now. It almost sounds like I have an exhaust leak, but it onlys makes noise when I get on the throttle. Is it possible for the leak to only occur under boost, or is this just the sweet sound of my turbo?

Its just the sweet sound of the turbo, my TXS TBE makes the same sound after I installed it last week, went to a meet and asked if it was normal and it sure is.

Well I already have a Cobb AP and I'm running Stage 2, which brings me to my next question... Before when I was Stage 1, I would see contant boost in the 15's with an occasional peak at 16.0 however, last night after the install and reflash to Stage 2 I went out for a ride and had constant boost in mid-high 16's and a peak of 17.3 Is this normal for Stage 2, and how high can I safely go before messing up my internals?
Thanks
-Tom

It may take up to 2 weeks to learn and then boost should level out and stabilize. This is according to Cobb. I would get 100 miles on it before you start sweating it.

I have a catless up and dp combo. I know what you man about a possible exhaust leak. I am 99% sure it is just the whine and spooling up of the turbo.

A great sound though!!
