as i stated earlier my guage barely goes over to the boost side when i get on it. ive checked the vac hoses and such and they look ok. does anyone know what else to check. the turbo sounds good and smooth so i dont think thats it. its like the turbo is set to low or something is cutting the boost back..... thanks for any advice

Re: shows low boost on guage (phils94850)

Turn the wastegate rod ONE turn clockwise, (shorten the rod) and see what happens

No...just don't do it with the engine running... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Well, actually you do have to take the heat shield off...but that's it.
