Ok guys here my issue... I Just installed a T28 Turbo on my 2001 Civic... Everything seems to be hooked up right... but im not making SHIT for boost.... like .2 lbs at idle.... And driving it as hard as i could it only got up to 1lbs.... Thats the highest i can get it... Now ive checked some of the easy shit... Wastegate isnt stuck open.... CHECK... No open lines through charge pipes... CHECK... BOV isnt stuck open..... CHECK... I have no clue what the deal is.... Im thinkin maybe since i have the 2001 Civic HX ULEV (Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle) That maybe it just isnt spinning the turbo hard enough to get her to spool.... Any Ideas would be greatly appreciated!! Thanx!

Ok I'll Take "Im an Fuckin Idiot for 1000 BOB!!!"

Ok heres the deal... I started by checking to make sure my Gizzmo MS-IBC was reading right..... didnt wanna ACTUALLY be making boost and not have the wastegate open at all.... Sooooooooo like anyother professional... I did what most people would do.... Had my brother blow into the hose while i watched the guage..... NOTHING!!!!

Sooooo I checked the input line into the Gizzmo... DISCONNECTED!!! I guess i Pulled a lil to hard when i was running it... so ok... Fixed that... Yaaaaa... Should be making boost right???

NO!!!!!!!! Took it for a small spin... MAde boost up to 1lb and then NOTHING!!!! So of course i said the Mechanics Anthem... "God Damn Muther Fuckin Cock sucking piece of fuckin shit, i hope u burn in hell!!!!!!"

So i started looking again.... And i noticed just a lil bit of light coming from right above the TB... Yup.... The intake Pipe Came OFF!!! Just enough to make nothing... but barely noticable... So I grabbed another coupler and went to town with it!!! A O K!!!! YAAAAAA

So took it for another spin.... Everything is running goooooooodddddd.... Except............ It doesnt seem to be making alotta boost... I think the max i got it to was 5lbs..... But she took the FUCK off at 5lbs and 4k RPM VERY NICE....... Now i gotta figure out why its not pushing more.... And i know imma catch hell for this part.. but maybe its part of the problem!!....................... I ran all this without the Emanage even hooked up..... This was on a stock ECU... Nothing special.... Now it Felt GREAT!!! But i know i cant run around like this.... And JAMES... I will most likely be coming to see u sometime soon!!! But I dont think this has anything to do with not making boost..... or could i be wrong??? I appreciate all the help so far!!!

The stock ECU isnt keeping the turbo from spinning more boost. Its probably just what the wastegate is set at. And you should be glad as shit that thats what it is set at...because running no form of engine management is a no no. A no no that will end in...KABOOM!

Imma guess its a boost leak somewhere.... cause i dont think the Wastegate is opening at all.... no worries... i will update as soon as the emange is in......
