Shock pressures.

I just built up my new frame with a Super Fatty DL Headshock, and I'm not sure what amount or air pressure I should keep in it. I usually fluctuate between 170 - 180 depending on the time of year. I have tried to run it at 150psi., but it still seems way too soft for what I'm used to. Do the headshocks not work on the idea of using a fraction of the rider's weight?

Thanks for all the help. I will just have to call Cannondale on Monday.

Pardon my bitterness, but I would like to ride sometime this week.
