Thumbs down Bov problem?

My boost was working good earlier, now I am getting nothing on the gauge at all and I cannot hear the bov. I also can not feel any boost. I think it sounds like I can hear my turbo louder. To me it seems like my bov is sticking open. Is this possible? BTW, I always run at 23 pounds.

coupler came loose.

happened to me at the track when my motor mount broke the motor lifted and pulled the coupler off the turbo.

be careful you'll overspin the turbo...

Deff sounds like a blown loose IC pipe. Either a coupler or if welded together may not have got good penetration and it cracked loose. Have also know of cheap intercoolers blow apart at weld over 20psi.

That sucks, good luck finding it. My bov from Hong Kong has a black plastic ring that

mates up behind the outlet and is supposed to be centered around the center valve the

opens at lower boost levels. The black plastic ring had slid over and didn't let the bov

seel right. But your problem sounds much worse.

Well you guys were right, the line that connects to the bottom of the turbo that goes to the intercooler completely came off.
