Default Adjusting Forge WG

I'm trying to adjust the WG on my Stg4 t7 tdo4. I came with the green spring which is rated 5-10psi & a yellow spring which is rated 9-15psi.

I turned in the WG arm about 6 turns to get around 8-9psi so I figured if I'm trying to get 9psi I can switch to the yellow spring with full wg arm travel. What a pain to swap springs!! unfortunately now I'm getting overboost to 30psi settling at 24psi and yesterday I got a Limp mode.

An addtional question...The car has always run rich and mileage was never ideal...When car went into limp mode no matter how hard I pushed it (hwy/city) the mileage was great! When limp mode is activated does that take the Bcr out of the picture? in other words, if I can get great mileage and a seemigly smoother response (besides lack of boost) what is being shut off by the engine that would instantly increase mpg?

Well limp mode is limiting the amount of gas put into the engine. So in limp mode you will have better gas mileage all around because you can only accelerate to a certain point.

Even at 70mph I was getting 33 highway....and it seemed to idle and pick up more smoothly than when not in Limp mode.
