What do I have to do to get somewhat of repeated boost? It will boost "normal" for a few days after reseting the ecu. And now, shit, 8-10 psi in 2-4th. I can't deal with this sparatic crap.

nothing wrong w/the bov.

If you're worried about it leaking - use a sealant. I didn't and mine dosen't.

I know a couple people using it w/stage 2 and no probs. either. - The bov sounds awesome.

I like the bov sound. I made sure the gasket and everything was on good and I know the bolts are tight. Has noone experienced this.. losing boost after a couple days of driving. What can i do to ensure that I get full boost in the time the ecu is learning after the reset?

check the hose on the back of the turbo, that's a major leak nobody ever finds.

The PCM is supposed to up to 15 psi. It determines whether it's making enough power at whatever temp and pressure you're sitting at, and adjusts the boost downward to make sure it's not making too much power. I'm sitting at 1200 ft, and I can hit anywhere from 12-15 psi depending on the outside temperature.

There is a temperature sensor in your intake I believe - I've read on here somewhere that moving it into the engine compartment where the air is hot tricks the pcm into using full boost all the time.

Has anyone else heard of this. I also checked the one on the back of the turbo, its tight.

I have heard of this - what they are referring to is wedging the sensor next to the battery where it's good and hot. Yes it's true that boost wil spike for a run or 2 when you do this - but the computer figures it out after a couple pulls and remaps. Plus - I wouldn't think of doing it myself - this is the ultimate welfare mod. Fooling the ecu to think its getting hot air and compensating is a recipie for problems IMHO. This can't be good for the car.

I do not like dealerships, I do not trust them on working on my cars. They are good people, but I am too protective of who touches my car. So, I would like to figure this out myuself, unless it is a ecu problem.

personally, boost seems to always be a bit higher after resets. there are too many factors involved. if you're making target torque, then you're making target torque, no matter what boost you are running.

you've checked for leaks & cracks, ok.
if you ignore the boost gauge, is your car actually running slower?

good luck
