where in my post did I ever say I was messing with it? I'm new to the turbo world but i know pretty much how everything works by doing research. and had to find out where the boost solenoid was on the 08 cause its in a different spot then the 02-07's... its near the intake manifold on the 08s and near the airbox on the 02-07's... that way when I get my prodrive BCS I know where the stock one is.. which I found the other night while looking at the intake manifoldnot trying to be an Ahole or anything but in your 1st post you said you're new to the turbo car thing so why mess with it in the 1st place?
whats your target boost? Mine over boost by .9psi in 5th but the ECU will learn it and fix it itself.... now if your over boosting a lot then you need to go back a half turn.i've just shortened the actuator shaft 3 turns
i hope thats not over boosting it
i did feel a difference. the boost kicks in earlier.
before it kicks in after 3000 rpm now it kicks in at around 2700 rpm
it's pretty nice on the freeway when ur at 5th and u just want to pass up someone real quick
Get a gauge ASAP, IMPO all cars should have 2 (or 3 if it's a turbo) gauges that they seem to exclude Volt, Oil PSI, and Boost if it's a turbo...how many turns did u shorten urs by?
i don't really have a target boost lol
and i'm not sure how much more boost in getting cus i don't have a boost gauge to measure it
i just want to get good amount of boost with out hurting the car
i'm a bit concerted now
Thought you were tuned with AP already? You should know what your target boost is if thats the case and the AP has a boost meter. If not, screwing with the WG is not exactly the best way to go regardless to alter boost levels. If anything, a manucal boost controller is economical.i'm a bit concerted now
i think i want to loosen it up a turn now
