Thumbs up

Thanks guys for your replies. EGR is non existant on my car ever since I took ownership of it I flushed all boost related lines and both switchover valves with carb cleaner and still no luck. Then I decided to adjust the wastegate. I took removed the 10mm nut and then thightened the adjustment screw with a 3mm allen key as much as possible and took it for a spin. 3rd gear, 4000rpm, under load, I'm now getting 12 psi boost which is much better than the 9 psi that the gage was reading prior to the adjustment. It's still doesn't accelerate the same as when I bought the car but its better than what its been lately. I guess I'll have to replace the wastegate someday.
