missing burble might mean equal length headers.

0.7 is the standard boost level...

idealy keep the heat sheild on,minimises the risk of heat sink into the intercooler..

headers,manifold.....equal length means same ammount of pipe work from block to exhaust..

Re: help please wheres me burble n turbo whine gone????

the scooby burble is caused by the exhaust headers being different lengths so the fireing of the cylinders exit the exhaust pipe at the same time. causes the burb burb burb sound, equal length headers cause the exhaust gases to get there at different time like a normal car so you dont get the burble.

equal length headers tend to give better performance but i dont think sound as good

i'd get a specialist to check it out first, make sure its that rather than spend money and find you've wasted it. byuut you can just put unequal headers back on
