have a question?

Post by boosted97sx on Sun Mar 22, 2009 8:55 am

I have my boost set at 13lbs.... What would cause the turbo to only boost 5lbs at time and 13 at others like it should?

it sounds like I have an exhaust leak...would that do it?

Could be a leak in the intake system too, can't hurt to check.

Felpro Part #'s

3009 for fiber on one side $8.99 for a 12x 28 x 3/64 sheet

2499 for fiber on both sides $11.99 for a 12 x 28 x 1/16 sheet

they have a metal center so its gonna take some effort to make them. I used a brake line (cut), chisel, hammer, and now ruined counter at NAPA.
