quick update, no pics.

had my full tbe fitted now and makes an awesome noise,  :evil: also goes like stink.

had it in at awesome about 2 weeks ago for the fitting of the DP and also to have a quick diagnostics as my car wasnt boosting past 10psi!! they couldnt find a fault but did find that something on my susspension had snapped, so that will be replaced under warrenty next week i believe.

Now the thing that p!ssed me off was the boosting, it should go upto 20-22psi on full boost, mine was boosting upto 10psi and then after about 4k revs it would go up to full boost, it did this for about a week and then wouldnt go past 10 what so ever. so i thought id call forge up and i spoke to a very friendly man, he said it could be a problem with the DV sticking. So he sent me a service pack free of charge containg a new spring, piston and washers.

So i recieved the pack, went under my car to remove the dv, removed it, cleaned it, put the new spring etc, re-lubbed it, went to put it back on the car and realised it had been mounted incorrectly in the first fecking place!!! WTF!!! it was actually on an angle mounted in the wrong holes?!!

So awesome fitted it in the first place, and i paid for 2 hours diagnostics session, for feck all!!! annoyed and waiting for a respose.

On another note the car now runs amazingly, boost straight away and the tbe really makes a difference!!  :smiley:
