Re: Turbo problem??

make sure all pipes are tight to the turbo from your induction kit and from intercooler as if u get pressure leaks from the pipes u will have no turbo boost ie turbo stops working

Re: Turbo problem??

Thanks for the advice,
But i think the turbo is working,I think the problem is with the wastegate,I may be talking rubish,but it seems like all gases are going straight down the exaust,sometimes there is a build up of pressure and the dump valve kicks in-but then nothing,but not being a mechanic iam at a loss.

Re: Turbo problem??

sounds like the dump valve might be fecked and bleeding boost on pressure, what make is it?

also some have adjustable pressure control on a spring, might be set to low

Re: Turbo problem??

make sure its agenuin vf34 and not a copy. 550's will be fine, and a walbrough 255 fuel pump is the norm one folks get
