It has a mbc and gets to the set psi easy in 3000rpm range and is steady all the way to 7000.
The cracked header is minor i think because it was welded but the little bit hidden in the collector could not be reached.
I wanted mostly street use so wanted the lower psi. Before all the fixing it was set high and easily hitting 26psi.

As for the launching i dont know the best way. And really did not launch. that time was at maybe 3000rpm or just under with a little slip taking off.

the only built part of the engine is the pistons the rest is stock parts. dont know high to aim for in turbo pressure.
Hmm I wonder what turbo your car has on it
My biggest recommendation to you is to find a reputable shop in your area. A quick google search I did came up with Speed Industry located in Troy MI. I'd have them do a complete vehicle check and sort out any leaks (header, intercooler, vaccum, etc.) and retune the car for the highest grade of pump gas available in your area.

Do you have a complete mod list? Or at least details on the fuel system? What are you using to tune with? AccessPort?
