Boost leak fixed today
So I have been a little concerned with how fast my EGT's were climbing under full throttle lately. Under normal driving conditions they were fine,usually around 450-500 crusin at 60mph. But under WOT it would only take less than 5 seconds to shoot up to 1000, too nervous to keep them climbing. So today went to home depot and got some 3 inch pvc cap and a shut off valve, threaded the cap and screwed in the shut off valve and a compressor fitting in sequence. Took a couple tries to get it to work, blew off my intake boot going into the turbo first, then tracked down my leak to the little red hose going into the solenoid valve connections on the x pipe. Wouldn't even build past 12 psi with it leaking out of there big time. So now I'm gonna go take a test drive, just had to come inside for a minute, Its like 100 out there!
