restrictor pills?

i have been have problems with my car cutting out once it hits like a pound or two of boost it will like fall on its face. i talked to someone at cobb tuning and he said sense my car is has never been on a dyno and tuned correctly i need the restrictor pills so it will not confuse the boost solenoid.. has anyone heard of this? my car has catless uppipe, catless downpipe, catless 3" exhaust, induction pipe short ram intake, and big top mount intercooler.

Re: restrictor pills?

there is a restrictor pill in the vac pipes and it will affect it heavily if its not the right size etc.

if your running all those mods without a map then drive it as little as possible and hope no damage has been done already.

He bang on when he says its not been setup correctly.

Re: restrictor pills?

sound slike it just needs a good once over by a mechnic to put right whats wrong. Is it a full custom map for just a flash map?

Re: restrictor pills?

might be worth a email to Cobb asking if there should be a pill in and where and what size,
they should know what a stage 2 xxx is for mod wise,
once you know what size and where you can make one if you cant find one with some small drill bits.

Re: restrictor pills?

yeah i talked to a guy at cobb and he told me i should start by getting the original pill and install it and see how the car runs after that.. i also notice the car runs kinda rough when started up but after running for a few moments not long but yeah its smoths out.. do you think it could possiblie be a fuel pump starting to go out? it has enough pressure to run but once under boost it fails? just a though. i have had the car for like 5 months and only put like maybe 500-700 baby miles on it there is just under 82,000 miles on the car

Re: restrictor pills?

well update on the pill i got the complete stock vac lines from turbo to waste gate and from t to the boost solenoid.. i was able to boost up to one bar before .05 before it fell on its face a stuttered. it worked for about 8 blocks (to walmart) on my way home it was back to the bar above 0 if that and it would fall on it face and stutter again.. not sure on what step to take next.. any ideas?
