Possible EBP problem

Installed my powermax about a month ago... used to make 28-30 psi...now when i drive it it only is building about 12-15 psi... I have no leaks in the boots or up pipes and the charger is less than a year old (I bought it used but had a build date of June of 2010) So i narrowed it down to either the solinoid or the EBP sensor...

But will the solinoid fail in under a year??

Need this fixed soon cause it smokes SO SO SO badly and egts are terrible

No codes come up as well

thanks jeff

Do you have access to a good scan tool to do diagnostics? If you do, you can find the diagnostic procedure on this link.

Would a snap-on diagnostics reader be good enough to find out this info???

Could also be the MAP sensor hose, or the nipple on the intake could be plugged. A few guys over at dieselstop just had similar complaints and that is what was discovered. 2 Seconds with a piece of tiewire and your up and running full speed. Might be something worth the 2 minutes to check it.

In this pic, I'm pointing at the bracket for the MAP sensor. The MAP sensor has a rubber hose going from it to a barbed fitting to the intake manifold. This is the hose and fitting he is referring to.

Rubber hose that comes off the intake manifold. It goes toward the passenger side of the truck, to the MAP sensor. The MAP sensor is located on the triangular bracket on top of the heater core box. Check the hose for cracks, holes and stick something down into the nipple to make sure it is not clogged with soot.

The turbo used to make 28-30 psi about a week ago... now all of a sudden it just runs 15 psi.... it doesnt whistle as much either... thats why i was maybe thinking the solenoid??

It sounds like it is "spinning" like it used to at WOT.... power is way down with the lack of boost
