Trifecta Tune Set At What PSI?

sup guys, im gonna be purchasing the full trifecta tune, badnewsracing is having a black friday sale that comes with the free cable so i cant pass it up. The thing im wondering about is what psi is best to be set at, i want to say maybe 22-23psi but ive seen that some users are set at 21. is there a difference? i know that 25psi is too much since the turbo will be flowing hot air and go kaput after some hard runs lol is 22-23 conservative enough?

Also i have about 65,000miles on the clock and enjoying it but will it be a problem if i tune it now? im not that into "flooring" nowadays since ive lowered my car, but ive wanted the extra power to feel the difference. thanks for reading!

I'm not sure, but I believe it depends on altitude...this may be wrong...mine is at 23psi, and the tune is a HUGE difference

From what I understand, Vince will determine what PSI will be set based on the data he receives from your vehicles data log. I have several aftermarket intake mods - intercooler, chrge pipes etc. I can see my boost reaching 26/27 psi on a nice cool crisp day.

Mileage will not matter for your tune and Vince will determine your boost. The tune can be harder on your clutch (if you are) and your turbo will spin higher and generate more heat.

Also, you may want to consider Tbolt clamps available at DDMWorks etc. Or checking and tightening all the clamps from turbo to throttle body.

More info on Trifecta Black Friday sale if folks interested. All Trifecta dealers are offering a free cable special with a premium (datalogged) tune.
* US and Canada only
* Cables will be drop-shipped to customer directly ($15 in the US, $35 to Canada)
* Model must be 2008 or newer (also includes 2007 Kappa Roadster turbos)

Orders must be placed between 11/23/2012 and 12/31/2012. Customers should be advised that shipping / tune delivery times may be extended during this busy period.

What HP can I expect with a tune for an automatic GXP?

I currently have a Superchips Performance Tune, Fujita Cold Air Intake, Kappa Intercooler Pipes, SOLO Performance GXP Mach Performance Exhaust & High Flow Cat. What HP and Torque can I expect with a tune for an automatic GXP? What is the cost?
