I know a lot of pips experience low boost, low gas milage and smell from exhaust. I found problem for my symptoms. It was PCV Valve Cover Hose. Mine was cracked in 3 places and became hard as plastic. I ordered new one from IPD and meanwhile fixed old one. OMG - the R is quick again, boost builds quicker and goes all the way to 20 psi again (use to be no more then 17). And my gas milage went up. I was searching for the leak everywhere for couple of months and glad I finally found it. So if you have the same symptoms - you better check your PCV hose. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emcocktl.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><br><A HREF="http://ipdusa.com/product.asp?strParents=&CAT_ID=0&P_ID=4737&strPageHistory=search&numSearchStartRecord=1" TARGET="_blank">http://ipdusa.com/product.asp?...ord=1</A><p>It's hose A in the picture

Re: (chinaonnitrous1)

chinaonnitrous1 have you installed your catch can yet? Do you think you'd need to clean/replace your factory can, if you have aftermarket one in the car if you suspect it(factory)?

Haven't put in a catch can yet. But when I put in my FMIC there was a TON of oil inside my original one.<p>Id say a shot or two of oil.
