SC Turbo Shakeout Part 2

I got serious about the SC in the last week, after being sidetracked for awhile. I had some issues on the shakeout...car ran like crap on boost. I troubleshot all of the CIS. Tried all sorts of control pressures. Everything was good. Although I usually look at the fuel delivery first, I just got to the electrical system yesterday.

Took the Leask RPM solenoid switch out of play, no change. Took the diverter vacuum out of play, same. Tonight, I took the MSD 8762 Boost Timing Master out...Fixed!!! There must be something wrong with the board in that MSD, which I bought used. MSD said send it back, and they can fix it for somewhere between $20 -$80. Now I can put in my J&S Safeguard unit.

The bad news: clutch slips. I should have put in a new clutch disc. As soon as I go WOT in 4th, at 4000 it just revs to 6500 instantly. Crap.
