    PTE 6262, tial 44mm w/ 1.1 bar, brand new hallman pro boost controller, greddy type s bov, i can't get my car to boost past 20-21 psi, i have to still to a boost leak test but the fact that my car won't boost past this with the boost controller turned all the way up means i have a boost leak somewhere(whether it be in the bov or somewhere else) correct?? Also i have heard some ppl say the type s will hold boost up to 30psi and some ppl say it won't go much past 20?? do u think i should go with another bov??

    Do a boost leak test, then decide what your gonna do. I have seen people run 28psi with a type s, I'm running 21psi with 0 issues.
