Ok this is Kev ( fat astra man ) on my mates PC.
Ultimate street car is less than 48 hours away and we have major LET problems.
Just finished putting Nova LET back together and have the following problems:-
1. Car will have to turn over for about 2 minutes before firing up!
2. Once started the car will idle fine and rev fine.
3. Car will drive off boost fine, but once car comes on boost there is NOTHING! no power. Let off and dump valve will cherp quitely ( so there is boost but not much ).
4. No boost gauge at present. Tried turning boost up to combat lack of power. Dump valve is louder but still no power on boost.
The car will idle, rev and drive fine, but has !NO POWER! at all!!!!
There is small 5mm diameter pipe that comes off the turbo and the same off the waste gate actuator that lead to a small round thing. That thing also has another pipe that goes to a engine breather. Does anyone know what way round they go????
Any help would be a help, or if you could keep a look out up santa pod for a burgundy nova turbo and come and have a go at fixing it!!!
Like I say its just been re-finished so it may be a connector or pipe not on.
