UrQ low boost problems -Reply

Phil, I seem to remember that the intro service documents do
not say 2nd gear testing, at least the ones I have. As for the
check, that's a good idea that I have been putting off ever since
I bought the car for fear of what I'd find, but I think it's time.
How much could it cost to replace or rebuild the turbo,
right?????? Ha, Ha, arrrggghh.

Well, first of all it's _second_ gear and feather the brakes on a
WR engine, 
not fourth or fifth.  The engine should be at 5000rpm, throttle
fully open.  No 
more than ten seconds, mind.  I assume the throttle cable's
Secondly - lots and lots will know what I'm going to say next -
the _first_ 
thing to check in low boost analysis is the physical state of
the turbo.  Pull 
the turbo --> intercooler hose at the intercooler and and have a
grope inside.
