Fair enough. That's all I can think of, that the ecu is adjusting the vanes to try and get a boost reading, but because the boost sensor isn't sending back a reading it holds it there... I'm surprised it hasn't gone into limp mode as it isn't getting a boost signal, but maybe it hasn't failed completely...

beats me how it came off, as you can't get your hand in there to put it back on without unbolting the intercooler!

A bit of overboost? If the turbo is peaking and you hurriedly take your foot off the throttle, the vanes will close on the turbo but it will still - for a brief period - be producing a lot of pressure. I've had the charge air hose pop off the back of the intake manifold before. Bloody thing got me in the twisty sections of the Putty Rd towing the caravan too. Talk about black smoke!

you might be right with the over boost, occasionally it will hit 22psi. don't know if that's too much?
might zip tie it when i get around to cleaning the intercooler!

22psi isn't too high, before I'd adjusted my Tilix valve properly it was hitting 24, but that's also when the intake hose kept popping off too.


Perhaps I should check my own boost sensor hose. It could be holding on by the smallest amount - she's done a few miles now and I'm sure the rubber isn't in as good a condition as it used to be!

Tony, does it change the power delivery in any way, like, is it more linear?
