I only brought the 3bar because the max boost I wanted to run was 18 psi and i was told bye a tuner that the 2bar can only be tuned to 14.7 psi and here you are running 20 psi lol, the tuner also told me he can tune anything and i said i want to keep the factory ECM and he said he can't tune that lol.

you make the last row of the boost table rich enough to handle the max boost, it will do it, it just means between 15psi and 18psi it might be a bit rich, but more than likely that will be a second or two at most, generally when they come on boost it climbs pretty quick to full boost.

Yeah and can tweak the 14psi common in the rpm ranges as it builds to not go too stupid rich we've been up to 24psi on the 2bar

When my transmission dies I reckon I'll do a t56 conversion, I would like to keep the 4l60 but I've read they are expensive to build.

def go for the t56. 4l60/e are a money pit, they still blow up easy enough when built.
I'm the director of VSH (Vlad's Spec Holden), because HSV were doing it ass about.
