    Default Help! Not Boosting :(

    So i just got a new k06 hybrid on it and new exhaust manifold as my older one was cracked... 1st day it worked perfect, then we had to make a few adjustments to the actuator and fixed a boost leak on the top hat pipes.. after that i got an error code about map sensor but its gone again now.

    I did get an error code about faulty boost control sensor when we plugged the diagnostics in, replaced it and it went away but its still not boosting... i can hear the turbo very faintly when i accelerate and goes into higher revs but no where near as loud as it was previously and no power.

    Ive ordered a new actuator in the hope that thats what the problem is but if not im clueless... Any ideas anyone?

    Could you put soke kind of Mark. On the actuator . So when It moves if it moves you could see?

    Then go for a drive and check? If the mark hasn't been disturbed the actuator isn't moving.

    Of that makes sense

    Yeah i can give that a try tonight when i get home, one thing that makes me think it is the actuator is that i noticed the heat shield was catching on the actuator bending the rod a bit... so it maybe it did break something internally

    It could have distorted it

    Good to hear thought it would be actuator related somehow
