take a pair of vice grips and pich off the hose from the WG frq valve to the WG. **Carefully** accelerate and see what boost does. Caution - it is easy to hit overboost doing this. 

Also check the hose from the IM to dump valve. It is on the drivers side of the engine at the very back near the firewall - make sure it is not crimped where it goes over the bracket. 

enjoying the 5 below and snow in Montana - it's Quattro time :-)

well, the only thing keeping it from being clean is the faded clearcoat on the roof. other than that, it's pretty nice.

when she was boosting properly with the IA3+, it ripped up the twisties in pretty nice. IA3+ plus koni/H&R = FUN FUN FUN!

i'll keep the faith :-)

see ya,

Relax.  Even clean examples are money pits. :)
