I am no expert but I don’t think it’s any different than pwg. You would leave the factory harness plugged into the boost solenoid, but not use it to control boost. The tune is set up the same way for the most part, the boost solenoid will be receiving a signal but in reality it will not impact anything. The boost control would all be done by the ebc and mac solenoid. The dme would control fuel, timing, etc.Yes, herein lies my problem: I'm EWG.
Something electronic still has to tell the EWG to do "anything", it's not mechanical/pnuematic like a PWG.
Anytime. I can talk N55 all day .I have absolutely no doubt that the PS3 is a more powerful turbo.
However, I'm not building a track/drag monster, I'm building a hot street car.
For that, I still need a turbo that can spool before 3000 rpm.
You're right, generally the PS2 is a good option for that.
However, the downside of a PS2 is the back pressure it generates once it starts to get to 500-525-ish whp (due to the stock manifold).
A better flowing manifold would fix that, hence my comment.
Ideally, I'd love to do a real Garrett 3076; although, I'm EWG and can't figure out how to wire a boost controller into the signal path (my other comments), so pulling the trigger on a Speedtech doesn't do me any good right now either.
Regardless, thanks for the conversation - really appreciate the input!
How much whp are you aiming for?
