View Full Version : Boost fade...

08-11-2002, 11:56 AM
When I installed my BOV, i was noticing it would only boost 5 or 6 lbs, but then I got the BOV tightened down, so that it doesn't stay open at idle, but now it'll start out at 7psi, and fade down to 5psi by the time I shift gears.

I don't really understand why it would open under boost, and it can't be just a leak, or else I wouldn't be able to boost 7psi period.
I'm also about ready to buy a boost controller, and I'm wondering if that will solve my problem, or will the turbo work harder to push boost only to have the BOV vent everything > 5psi?

Any input appreciated...
