Many people do not understand how we test things. That one GC+ unit was shipped out as a TEST unit. We tell, and told this tester, PUSH it until it breaks. He asked how far as I said as far as you can. Paul was pushing more than 40PSI on the turbo. THIS is how you find the limits of things, you push them well past what they are designed to run, and see what fails. We got the unit back, inspected it, and it was exactly as we assumed, Overspeed, and thrust failure from simply pushing it way past its surge line, and RPM limit. Now we know where to set the boost recommendation for the unit. The tester was sent another unit at no cost and was told to keep it under 35psi.

The TU pump is enough for you. He easily pulls the 98-101Ron and E30.
