I am working out toward Flemington tomorrow at one of the local oil and gas companies.

In all my travels around the country I have never seen roads as steep as there are around here in many places.

Yep, you gotta love the Ozarks... Man I love Arkansas...

As for the boost PSI, you could adjust the wastegate if you have one, and limit it to either 10 or 12 PSI... I wouldn't do 15 sustained, 10-12 PSI max... Or just slap some ARP head studs in there, then you won't have to worry about it...

Wow, I didn't notice how old this thread is, until after I posted...

Here's a real hill for ya. 20 miles at 6.5%. First 90 seconds or so of the vid (not mine). Side of the road is covered in black patches from vehicles burning to a crisp. just typical BC stuff
