I had the 07 air pump delete and Cosworth cam sensor relocator sent directly to the shop. We're also gonna throw in a wideband, boost and oil pressure gauge. He's gonna give it a tune with 0 boost, I'm gonna drive it 500 miles, oil change and tune, probably at Precision Tuning in Lakewood.
Chris, At least have Ryan just have psi at stock boost. You also want some pressure inside the cyl to help seat the rings. You dont have to get on it all the time, but just drive it regular and put some pressure on it every now and then.
