Forge 007 Spring for Boost

Hello All,
I just got a Forge 007 Diverter Valve and I need to know what type of spring to use. I do not have a boost gauge yet, so I don't know how much Boost I am using. I just put in an APR Chip upgrade and use 93Oct I also have AEM Cold Air Intake... Any ideas on what my Boost is at? Should I use the Green Yellow Spring? Thanks... Still new to this, probably get a boost gauge soon.. but...

Thanks

Stock you're probably running 11 lbs of boost (if it's an '02 or newer, otherwise I think it's around 7 but don't quote me on that). So there's a good chance that APR chip put you over 15 lbs. Yellow is most likely your go-to-guy.

I'm looking to upgrade my DV soon as well. Let me know how that Forge 007 works out for you, eh?
