Now that I have determined that removing weight from the clutches in my 1100 turbo decreases RPM's, what's the ideal grams for MDS weights? I've been running 87g for the past two years which puts me at 7700-7800 in powder at 10k-11k ft. Would adding some grams get me to 8100-8200?

That's what I thought. Took a little weight off and I lost 400 RPMS. Spoke to an expert and said that happens because the turbo needs resistance to build boost which in turn pushes up the RPMS. Now I am wondering how much to add back???
