Turbo bosst issues
« on: October 08, 2013, 10:28:44 am »
After spending many days trudging the internet to solve an issue i have had since putting a second hand K03 on.
The problem is, when it comes on boost it goes round to 14 psi and then instantly goes down to 10 psi and hovers around that twitching between 9 and 11 psi, before putting this turbo on i had a nice chinese copy that ran a solid 14 psi with no issues,
I have a forge actuator running the yellow spring.
the actuator is ran from the pipe on the compresor housing.

just woundering if anyone has had a similer problem and wether i should take the feed to teh actuator from the boost pipe closest to the TB or change the turbo again.

Cheers

Mark.

Check for a boost leak.

sorted the problem, took the old turdo off, after it leaked alot of oil into the compressor housing, put another one on and it now boosts fine.
