oil coming from behind the engine, running down the exhaust and causing it to smoke. Oil pressure is fine and doesn't smoke outta the exhaust.

And I'm making a road trip home this weekend to see the family, and was wondering whats the lowest I can set my boost psi to? I don't wanna run 14 pounds of boost for a 500 mile drive if I don't have to. Tryin to save some GA$ haha thanks

where your boost is set will not matter, you will get the best gas milage when you are at cruise with no boost.... so set at 14 psi or 41psi will not matter unluss you get into some high speed boosting driving
Owns more Turbo FORDS than the law should allow....and still getting more

The stock WGA starts to open the WG at about 9.5 psi. You can't go lower than that.

Your right foot has more influence on mileage than boost pressure.

Bypass your controller and go straight to the wastegate. You'll have about 10psi. You could also make a 2 stage system with high/low boost settings.

You could chop a toe or two off... That'd surely make you "think" when pressing the pedal...

You better find out where that oil is leaking...
