Why is the map lowering boost close to red? I realize everyone is going to say 'protect the motor' but I'm not buying it. It should run 14-15psi till red. We have a BOV to protect stuff on shifts.

I know you kids like high red lines, but, if you look at almost all non race printouts, the torque drops right off after 5-6k.

There is fast, and there is quick. Learn to know the difference
