I posted this under the wastegate valve adjusting thread and didnt really get any answers. Here is my problem... I've had low boost since I got the car about 4 months ago. I get around 10 or 11psi. No check engine light or anything. I installed a new VIVA CBV, TCV, and replaced all the vacuum lines. I am certain they are routed correctly and have no leaks. I recently purchased an IPD wastegate adjustment tool and tried to set my wastegate. They say it should begin to move at around 4.2psi and setting it around 6 is still acceptable. Even with the wastegate linkage disconnected from the actuator rod it takes almost 8psi just to get it moving. And of course, to set it that that pressure means I can barely screw the linkage to the actuator rod. I checked to make sure I had no leaks with my wastegate tool. Is my wastegate bad and thats been the low boost problem all along?
I'm sorry if I offended anyone by making a new thread. I did search through other postings and couldnt find a problem like mine. I'm new to forums and not all that savvy about forum ettiquette.
