    As far as tips, just be careful in doing so if you’re not tuned. The car is expecting x boost when it goes to make power. I’m sure it impacts fuel trims in some manner as well. Adjusting the preload will impact that so without a tuner/logs to see the impact I’d just caution you is all. Small changes are better than big ones here (1 turn, test, another turn, test).

    Ya Randy was recommending one turn to increase preload. But he said if I maxed out the stock one it would be ok. He ended up doing something on computer end to command max smoothness and things worked out. So I'm now back to making more boost!

    Based on what Adam told me.. His setup is different and would not tell me the difference is. One can only guess on what the true difference is but his version is definitely different. Also the way he tunes the WGA is quite different. The man knows what he's doing!!
