I've been running 6lbs, which is typically the recommended (Put me at 201whp/205wtq). I'm not sure beyond that since I haven't ever turned it up. I don't plan on it though until I build the motor for more boost. Oh and if you ever have any questions regarding the Kit and install feel free to contact me, I'm still lurking around.

That's actually the route I've been planning to go one day. I was personally going to just buy an EJ257 short block from fred beans parts and upgrade the pistons/fuel pump. Reuse my stock heads and intake manifold.
