Oliver: Did you ever get this problem resolved. I am having a similar problem with my 5kcsq ... I have a new MM hose, a new breather hose, replaced all injector seals and injectors and after all of this the best I am able to get in boost is 1 bar except when I floor the accelerator and the engine takes a long time to get to 1.3 bar. The car is very sluggish, and all the work seems to have made no difference at all in terms of performance. All I am looking for is to get to stock performance.
I also have a 90 200 TQW which does not handle as well as the 87 5kcsq sedan but has a significantly more responsive engine.
Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Subject: boost problem
after discovering that the lower wastegate hose is limp and leaking, I replaced it .
was experiencing 1.2 bar boost with the leaking hose, when I replaced the hose just 1.0 bar.
already replaced the michelin man hose, throttle switch, upper wastegate solenoid hose, correct plugs, new wires,
the temp gauge doesnt get high though I was thinking the multi temp sensor needs replacing, I just replace all the possible parts that needs replacing.
any suggestions?, next step is the temp sensor, where can i find this? then the wastegate diap'
