Ok, i got my 88 turbo supra running

these are pictures of the car when i got it, im sure you have seen them



This is how i found it at the Junk



No rims!! ha ha ha ha

It runs great but only boost to 4.5 so its just as fast as my last two N/A's and also i think the waste gate is sticking because every time its about to boost and i let off the car wants to die or dies.. also sometimes it does not want to go into boost. And i only felt it go into 6 pounds once. :bigthumb: but as long as i go into boost then let off the car never feels like it wants to die.

Should i just keep driving it around or what? i have no clue.. im new to having a turbo car, but i know how they work and have worked on a couple myself.

P.S. who ever had this car before me did not have a clue what he was doing, almost feel sorry but not really HA HA HA HA HA :gaysex: also.. some poeple look better with the bra on :sad:

Ummm... where is the factory BOV :nervous:

But it doen't even want to boost untill 3500 or if i have it in 2500 for a wile. Sure its the BOV? just that it sounds funny to me.

Cool how much did you get it for?

Sounds like you have a boost leak to me. Check all the intercooler pipes.

The BOV is the thing that connects from the intake to the "3000" pipe. It's cylinder shaped, if it's deflective, it will also cause you to loose boost.

Take it off and blow into it. If you can blow through it then it's junk and needs replacing.

I got it for 1400 after plates n shit...

Found it HA HA HA.. im retardid. lol.. just that it was kind of small and i thought it was for somthing els. That makes total sense Thx!! if its not working then the actuater sticks and returns air and there is "a boost leak" or makes it run lean if let off and causes it to die or want to die? right?

Yep the BOV is gone!!

Is the actuator just stuck? if so wouldn't i be able to spray some PB blaster into it and loosen it? If not, should i get an after amrket BOV? or stock works more then enough for a stock set up. Elmherst Toyo wants 75 bux for a new one... any one get an extra I'll give you a pat on the back if you send me one! ha ha ha.. I pay if your greedy. lol

Edit: it shold be fine if i just cap it off for now.. right? :ugh2:
