    More restricted? From all accounts, the low-down torque is better on the standard mani... Not sure if that has a bearing...

    Here's the wastegate side...





    And a look inside the exhaust inlet...



    Its one passage, with the wastegate opening into the first part of it (where my finger is).

    Tested it at lunchtime with the actuator disconnected and the wastegate tied open. Pulled 0.5 bar at peak. Should be 0...
    any turbo with internal wastegate will run some boost it cant be 0 bar whereas with external waste 0 bar is possible

    btw what dump pipe are you using? split ones? maybe the wastegate is hitting something therefore wastegate isnt fully open? i m just guessing

    Unfortunately, due to the manner in which it does this under full boost, i.e. in under a second, its a bit of a problem. If it introduced this a little slower, it could be contained.

    It was suggested that I use an AVCR to control the boost at a specific rev point. But this is a bit defeating. I'd have boost of, say, 1.2 bar up to about 4500 rpm, then it would have to be backed-off to 1 bar. That's a noticable loss of power at the point where most power is usually produced...

    Yep. I know a few people who have done that and had exactly the same problem. They landed up having to fit external wastegates. As the turbo I just fitted has only done 5.5k km, I'd rather just fit the standard mani if that will sort it...

    Left it a fraction longer before lifting off this morning and it spiked to 1.5 bar...

    Ok Ive had a chat to a few people and engaded my brain and consensus is the manifold will have bugger all effect and is very unlikely to be causing this issue.

    It cant be the extra flow causing problems as if this was the case it would be a gradual steady build not a instant spike. With it being such a big rapid spike it kind of points towards the EBC. However it must be a faulty unit as it cant be a short or earth fault otherwise Id guess it would fail safe and go fully closed hence reducing your boost.

    Thinking is the controller works by interupting the wastegate boost feed, feeding it through a small orrifice and then bleeding off air by opening a valve to fool the actuator into remaining closed. So to increase boost pressure the valve needs to open and to decrease pressure close to increase the feed to the actuator can. So if the EBC is for whatever reason getting very confused and suddenly going wide open this could give you spiking. Other possible suggestion is some kind of contamination in the solenoid.

    Well thats my best guess and the easiest way to prove it is to bung on another EBC. You may have already said but if you run with the EBC off does the boost build smoothly to wastegate set pressure with no spiking? IF this is the case it kind of reinforces the idea its a control problem and not mechanical.

    Again this could be nonsense and Im happy to be proved wrong, but I think before you lose the manifold its worth trying a different controller.

    OK. To throw a spanner into the works...

    It does the spike when running with the EBC off and just the actuator adjusted up. It also does it with the EBC bypassed through my own finely adjustable version of the Apex Performance boost valve...

    A thought has occured to me about something which may *possibly* have an effect. I'll try it at lunchtime. Its off on a complete tangent, but is linked to the car's boosting...
