    No boost...........

    I had my VXR turbo put on my Zaf today by a garage, It took me 8 hours to do the last one myself so i thought sod that...

    Anyway on the drive home there was no boost at all and im running the ipf 245bhp leh map....

    So i felt sick and thought here we go again Turbo trouble again...

    I had a look under the bonnet and hes wound the actuator right down no threads showing at all, Hes prob had it off to get the turbo in..

    So ill set it up in the morning and hopefully it will be ok. Am i right....undo both nuts then close the wastegate up by hand nip bolts up then turn top bolt up 1 full thread and then tighten both nuts up...Job done???

    well ill be adjusting mine after fitting a new manifold and restrictor bolt next week so be good to see if the bolt prolongs my turbo a little longer and minimises the weepage

    good luck with the TT unit - fingers crossed theyve upped their game!
