yeah fair enough psi... so on the note of amps... how much have your cashies (if they have em) got the XP-480 up for?

also, how does your in-car controller handle? i mean, do you find it spikes? or the waste gate opens to late or what? im interested in getting an in-cab but i dont like the idead of having such long hoses is all...

It doesn't say in the catalogue, but does anyone know if king spring still make the competition low and the ultra low series?

Selva ive know nothing else but having a incab unit, i love it because you can fiddle with it depending on your driving mood, the weather or the hight you are above sea level. a long hose will not make a differance to a short hose, its not like its having to wait tobuild pressure up in to little hose before it starts charging the turbo.
also im not sure if ive got one of them amps but i remmber i had a matalic blue Philips amp today so ill have a look tomorrow for you

why do ppl listen to max watts? (no offense)
the pioneer series of sub (except the top end $1500 each subs) have an average RMS (recommended) watts of approx 300 - 500w so the XP-480 phillips will be PERFECT! trust me on that, i had mine running a 1200mw (700rms) P5 Sony xplod and i floored some wanker who had 2x Kicker 15's (those square ones) so... yeah, moral of the story, only pay attention to the RMS Watts, and also, watts mean SHIT, my 12" Kenwood 100w RMS sub destroyed my sony :P...
