I need a litle help(my friends would say I need alot), My Tekin w\v208 and when I had v203 after about a minute or so into a run the power drops off like I have no turbo at all. If I let the car sit for a minute the power comes back. My motor temp on a x12 13.5 is 135f+/-, and my speedo temp is 115f+\-. when I put it back on the computer the settings have NOT changed at all.
Antone have a solution to this problem?

Sounds like it could be the floating full throttle endpoint problem that users of certain radios have had an issue with in the past, but setting your endpoint on the radio to 90% then calibrating the ESC, then putting the endpoint back to 100% should fix that issue. The ESC might not be seeing a full throttle input from the receiver after a few minutes, but if you make it so full throttle is a couple mm before the trigger is fully pulled, it should hopefully fix it.

I tried the epa adjustment and no change. I am running a futaba 3pk.

Your choice of words makes it difficult to answer, but I think you are looking for this.

A turbo setting of 20 will give you the following reaction:
1.0 Ramp rate = 20 degrees in 1 second applied
2.0 Ramp rate = 20 degrees in .5 seconds applied
3.0 Ramp rate = 20 degrees in .30 seconds applied
That's how long it will take to reach full turbo timing. That amount of timing will stay steady till you drop below 100% throttle.
