: : : Not thinking about playing around with the boost anytime soon, etc., but how exactly could that be done?

: I could be wrong, but , intuitively, it would seem that you want to ENLARGE the pulley for higher boost. You know, larger pulley can drive belt faster creating more boost, etc, etc...Also, why do you say 9 psi is the max?? With my Vortech from Dinan, it'll accept boost levels into the low 20s...Of course, if you have a Powerdyne, then true, 9 psi is as high as you can go. Even then, you still run the risk of that damn internal Powerdyne belt disintigrating!

Imagine you're riding your bicycle. If you want to go faster, you shift to a SMALLER gear in the back. Same story - want torun the SC faster for more boost? Smaller pulley.
