Can you get more than 8psi from Dinan S/C Safely?
Looking to get more HP out of my system.... I have a 97 540i 6Speed w/ the Dinan SC and many other mods (see link below)
Stock boost is 8PSI, how much can the engine safely hold? I havent done anything to the bottom end yet...
There's nothing wrong with the power
It's low-end torque.....I have the same issue with the Vortech supercharger......low RPM torque is just that "low"....yeah, I know, I am a Wussy, Auto tranny....
You could go higher with psi, but the intercooler will add weight and drain more energy....there's a point of diminishing returns
