    TURBO HELP PLEASE

    Right where do I start, I have a 52 reg cab turbo with a few mods, exhaust, filter and bigger intake piping and bailey dump valve.
    I had the car Superchipped which gave me 181 bhp at the wheels on 10 psi of boost, I make this about 208 bhp at the flywheel. I was not happy with this as I have seen standard cars with 200 as standard! I have had the car put back to standard and am looking at an AMD re-map. My car now kicks out 159 bhp at the wheels in 4th gear at 5750 rpm with 6 psi boost, which I believe is roughly 183 bhp at the flywheel, which I think is very low although I know the turbo engines have different remaps and I have seen the power quoted for the cab turbo at 183 bhp a number of times before, is my car screwed or am I worrying about nothing and should be looking forward to a visit to AMD? I would appreciate any help as I have no idea what to do, thanks in anticipation, Chris

    Boost seems a bit low. I thought 4th should hold about 9psi with overboos of 11?

    Could be damaged pipework somewhere that is leaking the boost ?
    Could be Turbo is on the way out ??

    Thanks for your help everyone, much appreciated

    I have it booked in with Vauxhall tomorrow to have it looked at, I think it could be turbo as I am getting a strong exhaust/burning smell under heavy acceleration, I just hope the warranty covers it , at least it has the standard map! Has anyone had a turbo fail?

    Its only done 17,000 miles but my mates has just gone at 35,000!

    213 bhp - 165bhp Is that not a hell of a drop for a 2 wheel drive car.
    What have you had done Craig? if that was the sort of power drop then when mine was 181 at the wheels it would of been about 233 bhp at the flywheel! and thats not possible as a standard cab turbo kept up with me and I'm not that bad a driver
