Re: 0 boost after BT install (stevovw)

aren't you the one who was half assing your install? doesn't suprise me you're having nothing but problems. i'm sure we'll see your set-up forsale soon.
no boost=boost leak.
no start=no spark or fuel like i suggested the last time.

lots of smoke=oil drain not pointing strait down
turbo oil drain must be directly down.

garrett actually specifies it can be 15* off center in either direction, and that is conservative, so thats not it.
What are you using for an intercooler? have you checked your ic piping??? If your still using an IC that utilizes the stock plumbing I would definitly look at that piping since you said your stock turbo wasnt boosting either....

Re: (stevovw)

ok for one, when you build a car or anything with a motor in it, make sure everything is tight and as it should be for driving on the road
- loose wastegates?? comon
- no MAF or 02? duh no wonder
- IC pipe not clammped? might want to try fixing that if you want boost
