disconnected wastegate, still blowing off ???
I disconnected my actuator just to run it to see what it would do for a couple miles. (just pulled the air line off of it). got on it and droped the go pedal and it still blew off. That wonderfull sneeze . But then I thought to myself.. *** is is still blowing off for if I disconnected it? has anyone ever done this before? Can anyone explain what is happening? didnt make a difference in boost ( getting 25) and acts the same.... was my actuator ever working and how can i tell if it works or not. .. i got a edge cs in it and have noticed at idle that it says that my wasgate is open at idle, and as soon as i hit the gas just a little it closes. but thats just a guage. i went under the hood and put my hand on it and looked at it, had my friend fire it up . no movement, and then touch the gas and didnt move at all. but gauge says it went from 0% to 99% closed ????? no clue whats going on.
i understand that there is pressure that will push it open to get that sneeze sound from the blow off. the sound is EXACTLY the same as if the actuator was connect. need some help
