    Solid Boost Pipe With Collins Issue...

    Dear all

    I've purchased a Solid Boostpipe with the collins dumpvalve.
    Yesterday after i installed everything i noticed the car aint boosting as before...
    It takes more time for the turbo to spool 1.2 bar up...
    With the rubber hose it was right away and now i have to wait <it's almost like i have a big Turbo Hole>

    Could the collins cause this?
    I always thought that Solid boost pipe is a must

    Could anyone know what the h*** is going on :P

    Thanks!

    is it a brand new collins? is the collins dumping ok? (releasing pressure)
    Sometimes you need to drive them for abit for them to grease up properly.

    Collins is dumping excellent... and its a brand new one

    Today i noticed that the car boost went little faster but it's still slow as compared with the rubber hose without dumpvalve...

    I also had some backfire today so i am really unsure what the hell is going on.

    where did you take the vacuum from to open the collins? if its not from the fuel rail that might be your problem?

    that is the correct way as far as i know. not good as i have a solid boost pipe and will be fitting a collins dump valve once it's delivered.

    i hope i dont get issues with this
