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
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 -
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
