Where Does My Manual Boost Controller Go?

Recommended Posts

I have just received my turbotech boost controller and wondering how to fit it.

I know it goes between the wategate actuator and turbo but what does it look like and where is it?

Anyone have any pics of install?

I have a R33 gtst series 2.

Also when i fit it will the two stage boost solinoid still function or do i have to bypass it somehow?

CHEERS

you have to bypass it run it. there should be a hose from you intercooler intake pipe to the solinoid run that to the boost controller and then run the boost controller back to the actuator..

do you have a boost gauge?

you'll want one..

lol then it goes between the cooler pipe and the wastegate actuator, make sure its wound all the way down (check your manual), the stock boost controoler has 3 lines just take them off i think from memory one needs to be blocked up just use a screw or something. Then make sure you have a good boost gauge not the shit factory one and go for a drive it should be like 5psi etc then increase the boost little by little untill you get your required boost.... i hope i have helped

OK done.Now running a constant 9psi.Would this be a safe boost level for stock intercooler.I have a tube and fin kit waiting in the garage to be fitted.Then ill go 11psi.But then i get into the rich and retard bracket dont i.What are you running on your setup?

post-26632-1166237407.jpgthis is what you did right? its not very difficult, only two hoses.

you can take the stock solenoid out or leave it in the car, either way block all unused hoses by screwing a suitable screw into the end and maybe a zip tie over it. there is only one small hose you need to do this to though. if your having trouble maybe you forgot this bit lol.

do u screw the bolt in for less boost or out? im still learnin haha

screw in for more boost, so when you first put it on have it screwed out so you dont overboost straight away, turn it bit by bit til you get to a good boost level.

PLEASE NOTE : this instruction is for turbotech design only, some other bleed valves may work differently.. if you have a different controller it may be the opposite. If so and you blow up your turbo dont come crying to me.
