Alan, I tightened everything up ( a number of possible culprits in the area).. Now a preliminary test drive show's its' still a bit rich - but I've not tuned it with AF/R yet.. However still only producing around .2 bar of boost.. I also tried the old carb cleaner around everything test and it seems solid,, starts right up and idles pretty well. So I'm still thinking there's a boost leak somewhere.. I took the hose off the inlet to the intercooler that goes right to the waste gate and I can hear the spring engage/disengage at what seemed pretty low pressure ( like 10 lbs).. how is the best way to see if it's holding pressure and not leaking ?? Or better question, what do you suggest next ?
