So since I posted last, there have been some changes. Ok not some, just one. I sold the ranger and got an xj. The past month I've had it, I've spentried every bit of free time trying to get what smells like stale crack smoke out of it, hence nof update for the 940.



Until today. I got my recirculating valve on, got everything plumbed right and battery charged up. Everything works! It all spools with no issue. Right now it makes about 4psi, didn't have time to mess with anything before work. But for 4psi, it feels quicker already than the 13c at 11 psi.

Lol


So I drove it around today some.. it's acting stupid. With the mbc on any setting, all I got was 4psi. I decided I'd unhook it and run a bare vacuum line off the wastegate. Now I get a whopping 6psi. I think my wastegate is borked. It spools just fine, and sounds and feels like it wants to build more boost but then it just stops. And now it's running like crap...maybe a vac leak.. got bored and went to work haha

that's not exactly scientific, but oookk... make sure it's not sticking open, then make sure it's not set up too loose.

make sure you set the preload on your waste gate actuator correctly. if its too loose you get no boost. (that rhymes.)

+1, check the preload. It should be adjusted so that you have to pull the actuator rod 1/2 the diameter of the pin to get it to slide onto the pin.
