In first the engine revs up so fast that the turbos can't catch up. I don't know what I run in first because it's pretty hard keeping things under control in first so I don't ever look. Wheel spin, working the clutch and all. I could have zero boost in first and wouldn't care. I rarely hit the second turbo in first and if I do it's a split second before I shift anyway.

you can see my mods below I am running base maps and hitting 9 in 1st gear on primary, adn same thing on secondary. rest of geers okay (12psi) with a low tyransition though, down to like 7 psi, then back up all the way to red line. People have been telling me this is normal. I knew is couldn't. only thing is to figure out what my problem is.

SPOautos, what is yoru transition drop at? in 2nd, third, etc
