Hey so i have the ipd tcv from march. The 'older' version. When flooring it in any gear i can get a max of about 8psi. my WG is set to 4.5 psi so I know the tcv is kicking in. There is no boost leak and whats funny is yesterday, like the past 6 months, I was getting 12psi constant with no issue.

Any ideas on what could be wrong. I have new TCV,BPS, and CBV within the last year. I tried resetting and re adapting the TCV but got 8psi and only 8psi right away.

does a failing TCV do this? I was under the impression it would either work, 12 psi, or not work, only 4.4 psi WG setting.

Ya i was afraid so. This is lame that ipd tcv fails in less than 6 months. Im rather dissapointed. I guess ill get a stocker from tasca when i can afford it.

Thanks

well i took the tcv apart and cleaned it all with gun cleaner (doesnt eat seals or anything). Also did a 30 min reset with fuses pulled. It seems to work fine now, knock on wood. Still gonna think about a stock tcv when i get some extra cash.
