My boost spike is 20-22 lbs it last for 1-1.5 seconds,
and only when i punch the gas.
What is the boost spike on the vnt turbo?
I personally am happy i have the waste gated turbo on my car, it spools up instantly can be be adjusted via different waste gates and has none of the issues associated with the VNT turbos.
The Audi TT uses a waste gated ko4 turbo.
I am curious if the VNT turbo has a boost spike as well.
I seem to remember reading that it does spike.. but its not my turbo so i never really looked that hard into it.
