If you do end up doing O2, I've had way better luck with NGK over Bosch the last couple years, both Volvo and non Volvo rides...

BOOM happened at 18 psi. Sounded like a balloon pop and then a loud fart sound.



Thanks Gary for hooking me up with another OEM elbow. I've decided for now to turn the MBC down to 12 again.

I am going to get an ebay IC and some pipes and do all of that now, but for IPD the car will be decidedly slower, but more apt to make the whole trip at 12 psi vs 18 psi.

Part of doing the IC is going to be cleaning up the top half of the engine bay, Intake, Brake booster, stuff like that. Fresh paint should help things.

I also put in some Blue EV-6 Mustang Cobra 40lb injectors in preparation for running 18 ish PSI, but now that I am turning the wick down some I am nervous that it will be too much fuel for 12 psi of boost. We shall see.

Does that area of the rubber elbow rub on one of the brake lines at the master cyl?

There is a radiator hose from a class 8 truck that is a perfect fit. Ask Eric Mollerstuen for the P/N.

It doesn't touch at idle, I'm assuming it wouldn't touch otherwise, but who knows what is going on in there when I'm mashing it.

Good to know, I'll reach out to him. With the evilbay intercooler there will be more pipe updating, so I'm not too sure yet what I will need.

On my car it got the brake line to leak. I had to replace it
I see yours is already bent to the driver side (front line)

ps get another elbow at jy and just go the whole way at 18... did over 100k miles at 18psi and few times well above that and never had a hose fail

Interesting. I guess Iíve got different a different master cylinder. Mine has a hard line exiting directly into that rubber elbow and there is always interference between the two. I havenít had any issues, but was just curious.

My concern at 18 psi is the OG intercooler, and all the other questionable OEM charge parts. The supporting mods are there, but I don't trust that stuff, and I need my better half to have a trouble free trip or she will never go again.

The elbow is very close, but just does not touch, I did tweak the hard lines a bit as well.
