i have a 89 turbo. the motor(jdm) and turbo were just rebuilt, but the car doesnt run right. when its in park, and you rev it up, the boost gauge never moves. and it seems the further you push down the gas, the less power you have. the engine runs smooth and has a good idle. please help me if you can

for some reason mk3s are notorious for not being able to ACTUALLY build boost( at least nore more then like 1-2psi) while in N or P. it should however at least come out of vacuum......

i think youll have to elaborate on your situation a little more for a real answer bro......

usually doesn't build boost in PARK or NEUTRAL man, and check your check engine light... seems like you might have a code stored that causes it to loose power like that and check timing and for exhaust leaks... aight good luck peace

Check your blow off valve, if you can blow thru it, then its bad.
