Default Boost

After I installed the stage 1 kit, Did the tranny learn thing, All works great but I did notice now that my boost will only go to 10 psi. It stays at 10 through all throttle but I used to get 14. Any clues I should look at?......Thanks......Andy

There is defenately something wrong.

I get 15 PSI and sometimes 16 and it is also an auto stick.

At58,

Does the car seem to be running better? I mean, does the Stage 1 kit seem to be doing the job? If yes, then it would appear that there may be a problem with your boost gauge, boost tap, or line to the gauge from the tap. If no, then I would check to make sure that all of your vacuum lines and hoses are ok (tight, no holes, etc..) and check your boost tap and line again. From what I have read and understand, you should be generating a lot more boost, particularly in first gear. When the Stage 1 kit was installed, a lot of hoses were disconnected. Check to make sure everything is intact and connected properly. Let us know what happens.

My two cents,

Scott
