Default Setup For A Consistant Boost Level

Bob,
I have had my 2 Step installed in my GN for several months. I have not had an opportunity to use it on the strip; however, I have tested it a few times on the street. During these tests, I floor the pedal and boost rises. I have watched my gauge and hoped that boost would reach a certain level (i.e. 9 psi) and remain constant. However, it appears to me that boost would continue to rise as long as I keep the pedal on the floor.
Now, my questions are: would you anticipate that there is a controller setting that would provide a constant boost level (i.e. 9 psi) in spite of the duration (i.e. 5 second) of the application? If so, how would you suggest I start to determine this setting?
Thanks,
Leon Boelte

it should level off.

Can you record some of this so I can take a look?

Bob,
Attached is a file I logged using the 2 Step. It was set for 3000 rpm with no partial cut. Looks to me like the 2 Step did just what it should.
This is my first PL file looking at the 2 Step results. In past tests I tried to watch my boost gauge. I got concerned when the boost rose above 10 psi and I didn't know where it would level off. Now I know.
Thanks, can't wait for a race track trial.
Leon
