I know this is going to sound funny, but I am dead serious..... does your cruise control work ?

If not I know exactly what your problem is.
I used to have the same problem, at 3000rpms my car would hit a wall and boost would go to 0.

I knew you guys would think I am crazy, but here is the problem.

Your ecu is not getting the VSS signal (VSS= Vehicle speed sensor). It is a common problem on supras for the solder on the back of the odometer to go bad. This is where the vss signal is located. So basically the ecu is not getting a speed signal.

Here are the steps to correct/ test the problem:
Here is how you can TEST to see if you are having a problem with your VSS or something else. If this jumper did solve the problem, then splice the 5 & 6 wires together on the back of this plug.

Since I am such a nice guy I will even include a picture for you... :bigthumb:

Here is a picture:



You can find more info by searching for "vss" or odometer + vss or anything simular to that.

Basically once you fix the problem everything will function correctly. You will have a better rock solid idle, and smoothe boosting! :)

K, now im off to have some beers with the ladies, hit me up if you have any more problems.

I have researched the VSS problem A BUNCH and know a LOT about it, but I never knew it caused boost problems. Thanks cwtt!

Yeah, actually effects a lot of things like : boost/sequential operation, idle, cruise control, false rev limiter etc.

Glad I could help you guys.

Now give me some rep points +1 haha :bigok:

Also causes funny shifting in an atuomatic car while driving slowly, and a flashing O/D light. Weird how just a simple signal could cause so many problems.

Yea I did that jump the wire shit and it still ain't working. My cruise is still dead.

Also, when I turn on the cruise, the light will go on, then it blinks off. Then it'll go on randomly a few secs later.

i have resoldered my points on my board only to have cruise control work when it wants too. When the overdrive is not flashing i can use cruise control.

I will try splice #5 and 6 together to see if that fixes that blinking light.
