For that 8sq cm housing and running the OEM 19.5 PSI, that is fine.

Once you run a 10 sq cm and aim for 22 PSI, achieving the needed preload with just 1.5 turns leaves the door swinging open at 45+ degrees.
With an 18 PSI, you may have the preload at 0.5 turns and open the door at above 50 degrees, at full actuator pressure.
Apologies as I checked and I'm actually on a 1.2bar actuator.

I'm running 1.8bar peak and 1.6 at 7500+rpm on the Meth map - 1.8bar peak and 1.7 at 7500+rpm on the VPower map.
