    Put a smaller pulley on.

    Was that other boost achieved on the stock engine?

    Yes on stock engine.

    Smaller pulley will over spin the rotor beyond factory specs, and I had the same size pulley previously.

    Just might be inlet restrictions. But I'm really happy with the power, feels so good even though it's max boost is not what I hoped for.

    I'll just live with it. Tired of worrying about it.

    Your last explanation sounds right. Move volume = more power. PSI doesn't really mean much. Lots of variables that can change boost.

    I want to buy the intake system with filter compartment that comes with the URD mk3 kit. Anyone willing to sell his? I know some people, @shane881510 , who have replaced it with an open pod filter.

    Anyone wanting to sell his lemme know.

    Still quite small filter, and that snorkel(?) hose might cause a lot of restriction for air flowing too.

    I agree, I'm looking to find a way to fit a larger filter. However, it is much larger than the old one, and I was able to make 10.7 PSI from the old one, with the same flexible duct and a smaller supercharger. So can't be the reason.

    Have you tried running with just a large cone filter, for testing purposes? To see if any differences were had? Or briefly with no filter?

    No I didn't. Not good for the engine, air will be too hot even before compression, will result in bad knock at WOT. I don't want to take the risk. It will be sucking in hot air leaving the radiator, further heated by the headers.

    I tried it without the supercharger and was knocking bad, imagine how it would do with a supercharger.

    Then maybe you should talk to whoever you're buying those intakes from, to make a larger one.

    I'm trying to get my hands on a URD intake. That would be awesome.
