That looks like mine did too. I still unscrewed mine and made sure the bypass was slammed shut. Between that, the RotoFab and X pipe/exhaust I think the car feels a little bit stronger in the mid range. And it certainly sounds better.

I made the adjustment to mine a while back as well.

Mine was over a full turn after making contact. It backed it out until it left about a paper's width as well. I haven't farted around a bunch, but my boost gauge was onto the last tick before hitting 15(11.125lb) when I took it up to 110. Before It wouldn't only go to about half (7.5).

Could be a placebo, I don't know; the car definitely feels a bit more zippy.

soooo no one has done full testing on this to see all the differences all the way in all the way out little off little pushing etc etc, no check engine lights or issues with moving the screw. what other parameters are changes with the boost?

I played with mine at the track with the lever starting slightly loaded in both a 5th gen and a 6th gen ZL1. Full loose, no measurable difference. If I load it more I can make both cars a little slower. An MPH or 2. I did not log on those runs, just compared slips. So my evidence is anecdotal.

It doesn't hurt to check it for too much pre-load. But no free lunch here as far as I was able to tell. A very experienced ZL1 tuner says there is nothing to gain here. Leave it alone. Much like a standard ZL1 Ported TB gains are minimal if at all. But if it feels good try it and let us know how it turns out.
