Yep - that definitely needs clarification... short answer - yes I drove it,
and there was no change in operation at all.
I disconnected the silicone hose that runs from the WGVF to the wastegate by
backing off the hose clamp at the wastegate itself. I pulled the hose off
the barb, and plugged the hose. I left the WGFV still electrically plugged
into the ECU.
I expected boost to go crazy high. Nope. Just like before boost climbed to
to 16 or 17, and that's it. It slowly backed off as I approached redline.
This test was the last straw - I didn't know where to go after this. I
can't find a boost leak, and there's no overboost. Why not?
