Thanks guys for the advice. In case you cannot tell I know very little about turbocharging but it looks like I am about to learn.

As for pushing max boost, I simply mash the pedal in first, shift to second and mash again. It is a great feeling when it works. If that causes max boost then perhaps the WG is opening. The whole WG device looks rather corroded as if it has never been cleaned. Fortunately it is easy to get to.

As for other symptoms during normal driving. Idle is perfect, WUR actually works well, and while it takes a while to spin up the RPMs when turbo does not work it will rev up to redline. I am not ruling out a fuel pump as they too are 22 years old. Perhaps I will simply replace these as part of the 30K mile maintenance. Sounds like I have a rebuild bill coming my way.

Hopefully I can handle most of the labor myself.
