i decided to do the DIY alky kit but had a question before i start. do i have to get a special chip burnt that recognizes the alky? can i run more boost say 20psi and have the alky kick in at say 13psi and still be ok on pump gas?
You can use the chips you have but I would begin w/a street chip until you've proved everything out & are familiar w/it. 20 psi won't be a problem. You should be able to run 22-26 depending on which turbo you have. Setting the turn-on point can vary because of the hose length, pump output & etc but 2 psi below the point where the car usually begins to pick up knock is a good place to start.
