turbo......gone!!!

hi there lads,

my issue is that i have recently changed gearbox as 5th,3rd and main shaft all got mashed so to speak....

so i chamged my box but now the turbo will not kick in, i goes through the motions great in low revs 2000rpm, however if i put accelerator down the turbo doesnt seem to kick in...like theres no power to the car!!! could i have missed any obvious connections???

i have checked all i can see, this problem wasnt there before i installed new box...

thanks

Re: turbo......gone!!!

are you sorted with this prob if not you could try the boost solenoid make sure it clicking when tick over this is common prob on them will stop car boosting correctly also check all piping from turbo to solenoid and to the inlet to make sure they are all free from kinks etc give me a nudge if still getting probs

make sure you nipped up intercooler pipes properly if they loose it wont boost (if you still got top mount)
