    my cobra has a vortech s-trim pushin 5lbs out. I have a reichard racing 3.2 pulley that should bring it up to 9psi. You think i should slap it on? or do i need to get some 42#er's and go with a new tune?

    What is your set-up? Only getting 5lbs out of an s trim you may have other problems.

    with stock heads you should be at 9-10lbs you have something wrong more than likely with your hp numbers its the boost gauge try another gauge because you may end up have more boost than you are wanting with a pulley change
