My cousin removed some of the hoses, telling that there are too many and can see where the previous own removed some mods, leaving a mess behind. One hose had the restrictor on it and the car ran fine, but after just a few months, the turbo was feeling weaker and weaker. I have a boost gauge and the turbo is still boosting 7-8lbs, but slower than usual and the BOV seems to be working fine. I put the hose with the restricter back on since other Forums stressed how important it is.
The turbo is boosting 7-8 lbs still, there doesn't seem to be a leak in the BOV and all hoses are on good and tight (I checked the lines over and over), but my engine is still got getting the boost. Turbo is boosting but the car feels like a 4 banger.....AHHHHH!! Help! Oh yeah, in case this helps, the turbo would hesitate at higher RPM's when the turbo was beginning to feel weaker until there feels like no boost, but my gauge tells me othewise. Thanks!
