boost controler help
« on: 01:40, Mon 06 April 2009 »
im wonderig if ive set the boost controller on the right side of the acuater, 5tevel said some pipes are wrong

heres it when i brought it with the manual controler here



and this is now as i removed the boost controler but now putting it back on is causing boosk spike and back firing with it in or out, but relised i have had it on the left had side,

so what side does it go and are my pipes wrong??



any advice is cool becasue atm its running 9psi!! and to be quite honest its quite tame , tho it pulls i would like a tad more maybe 15psi


is there any other r5ggt's near me or any meets soon say at lakeside or others

It needs to go in the pipe that comes off the front of the
actuator.If the car is back firing with it fitted your over boost sensor might need ajusting.Hope this helps mate

yes bod, i conected it up that way saw how to adjust the little screw inside, which way is to increse the boost switch sensor on the overboost.
got the psi to around 13 on the clocks, so im leaving it there till i get a afm boost gadge

I think you screw the over boost in.I'll double check tonight and let you know mate.Unless someone else knows.Or just dis-connect it will do the trick

I'll check tonight mate and let you know about the overboost sensor just dis-connect it for the mo there is a guide on the site somewhere about where the standard gauge should come to at different boost levels but i cant seem to fine it at the mo.Normal 15psi is just before half way in the red section on the standard gauge if my memory is correct have'nt driven mine for a while.

yeah if your not re-jetting the carb go for 14psi carb top.Is your intercooler flowed or not? Intercooler should'nt really blow apart at 15psi but might be worth strapping to be safe.

intercooler flowed?

well turnt the controller up a little more and feels like ive gone back wards with power so i pursume back it off and thats my boost/feul raito at its maxuim?



edit:feels like theres massive lag till 3/3.5k then drops off at 5k

i pursume thats to do with what some one (sorry cant rember) told me to wind out the rod a bit more to seal it properly

I dont think owe was being sarcastic think he was asking what turbo you had. If its a hybrid or standard as a standard t2 will only be good to run about 16psi.

And t2's normal do drop off boost the closer to 6k you get.

oh sorry my bad .i applogise owe,

i have t2

with the boost controler out by half its boosting 13psi but it dosnt hit boost till around 4k but pulls hard till 6.5k

with out it it goes from 3k to 5.5 @ 8psi

wound in the rod by about 3-4mm made no diffrence and tbh im not that up with turbo set up, realy goign to have to splash the cash and set it up with jets hg and then get it on a rr for the turbo guys to fuck around with.

am i better getting a bigger turbo but still run 13-14psi

thing is im just guessing with the clock boost gadge and realy need to sort out one, thinking of a swoosh one

For 13-14 psi you don't need a bigger turbo. It'll just be laggy if you did.
Flowing the intercooler is just blocking the thermostatic flap so it stays open and cooling the air always and maybe a little less restrictive.

There's a bit on here to compare the standard gauge to psi
