Boosting too Quickly
« on: 22:42, Fri 26 July 2013 »

Just bought my first 5GT Turbo - only issue is with the Turbo gauge - its red lining too quickly / boosting too quickly.  Im inclined to think its a problem with the Actuator - anyone get any other ideas before I snap up a new one on ebay?

Cheers,
Pete  :)

Cheers mate... had the pipes all checked and were fine.  Garage tapped actuator with hammer and then after driving it over the next few days it got better and better - so I can only assume the actuator had seized due to being stood for a while...

Still actuator will be on the shopping list soon  :)
