Ok. Yeah cause I was like, buy a forge bpv for $150. Or for $50 more I can get a fmic kit that has a bov already.Don't even mess with the BPV bs, just get an aftermarket BOV and relocate the MAF sensor. I have a 7" tall FMIC core without cutting the bumper or crash bar, it will fit fine.
Well, I wanna know if its the factory wastegate or an aftermarket one. Cause my boost doesn't sit steadily at 7. It jumps from 7-5. Or sometimes it wont past 5. I also have a CEL but its for a VTCS. I don't know if the vtcs would affect my boost jumping. Cause if it doesn't and my wastegate with the barcode is factory, imma buy the atp wastegate.What for? I don't know why they are there but I also don't know why it matters? lol
I just picked up the car about 2 weeks ago. Have been looking for a MSP for years. Finally got my hands on one. So I haven't had the time to pull out the plugs to check em for even burn yet. Don't even know which one to buy from autozone. My boost gauge sit just right under 20. But when I drive on the freeway and let go of gas it sits at 20. I do notice some blue smoke when the car sits for a long period of time. But goes away after about 5mins.Inconsistent boost could be an ignition issue, internal wastegate flapper backed out of exhaust housing, boost/vac leak, failing turbo, etc, several things could cause it.
I have it from wastegate to turbosmart boost control, to factory T fitting. And from the T fitting one is connected to my boost gauge the other to my intake mani.Do you still use the stock T-fitting for the vacuum lines for the wastegate actuator and bypass valve? A strong, independent vacuum source for your WGA and BPV may help a little bit. At the very least, it will eliminate one of the possibilities.
Thanks man!You should look into replacing all the original vac lines with silicone.
