I borrowed a boost guage off a mate tonight to see what the car is doing, as its not as fast as it should be. Well, turns out its only boosting up to 5PSi. Its running phase 3, no matter what position the rotory switch is in, its only going round to 5psi. I had this problem before but that was down to the 1st gear sensor in the box not being connected. I've checked it tonight to make sure the join hasnt broken(soldered) and its fine. The actuator has the EDS spring strengthener thing on it and the nut on the is wound out towards the pass. side of the car. This is the correct way to wind the nut to up the boost isnt it?
