I used a engine degreaser by detailers pride. Sprayed it on, let it soak in for a min. Scrubbed lightly with a coarse brush and rinsed. Fantastic product!!

I'll post a before pic later

I like it a lot, easy to use and reliable , but for me its 11psi on all gear so... And it shouldn't be different boost pressure on each gear since its a mecanical turbo controller, ball/spring type to be exact, but I don't know could be different for you? :shrug:

Boost tee's are just a cheap form of boost control, its not unusual for boost pressure to fluctuate in different conditions, as they don't have a set PSI. It is simply a small ball and spring, which is not 100% reliable.
