We finally got a video of the beetle hitting boost. We got 11lbs of boost and plan on keeping it around there for now. The transmission can't hold this type of power. the throttle cable is set at 72% at the moment to keep it safe. Please check out our video! like and subscribe.:) Instagram page- matt__lerouxx

Congratulations for this nice car. Can only be driven outside Europe. Here the racing commanders in green, blue or black suits would cash it and lock it down. That's a great freedom 馃啓.

Why do you limit the TB? It has less effect on the boost level as the boost control it self. Many setups aren't limited in MAP once the TB is more open then 70 %. The boost control function is the safest way to control the torque on the gearbox input. Just curious, what's the idea behind that limitation.

Hey! Thanks. We actually didn鈥檛 do it in intentionally to have 72% throttle. When we were doing some tuning we found out the cable is only getting that. We definitely will be working on getting it at 100% and we will change some springs for our boost situation. Thanks for watching!
