    Help with the missing hose??

    Just had a good look at my car today and found a hole with no hose connecting to it (see yellow circle). Not sure if this is a problem or is meant to be like this. I have a Apexi air filter on my car.

    After a bit browsing on the forum, I found pictures from others that having a hose (see Red Arrow) connected to the hole that I mentioned. But this hose on my car is connected to the actuator near the turbo. So I got no idea what is meant to be??



    I hope I have explain myself clearly and really appreciate if anybody can help. I am still a rookie on these S15

    Is it normal when the car idle the standard boost gauge read -5 and when boost is about 5ish. Not sure if the boost are right too becaue it feels a bit sluggush to me. May be its just me but it doesnt seem to me that its running at 250bhp like it claims. Boost dont really come till about 3krpm and it doesnt feel very torquey.

    But my only mods are back box and apexi filter

    looks like the previous owner has tampered with the boost solenoid and disconnected it.
    It's the solenoid which makes it possible to boost over the actuator setting which is 0.5 bar. if you reconnect the solenoid you should see more boost (0.6-0.7).

    How does the hoses look like?
    Do they have white lines in the ends?
    can't really see on the pic but is there a t-crossing which the hoses from the solenoid goes to?

    Found a pic of how it's supposed to look.

    Thanks for your quick reply

    Just went out and had a look again. The hose from the solenoid you are talking about(Red arrow) is connected to a filter (one like you get from a boost controller), then connected to the intercooler pipe at the front. No T crossing liek in your pic and hence the (yellow arrow) hose is missing too. Where is that yellwo arrow hose suppose to connected to?



    But the hose from the solenoid (Blue arrow) is in fact connected to the actuator, however in your pic this hose is connected to the air filter pipe.

    I am really confused now, please HELP!!

    I think I am missing a pipe somewhere and a T-crossing, why will someone do that??

    So will that mean I am running low boost?

    A Spec R won't run 250bhp when it arrives in the UK. It ran that in Japan using 101RON petrol and with a fuel map and ignition timing setup for it. It will need a remap for 97/98RON before (in standard form). If iit onnly boosting 0.5 bar, its not even reaching standard boost (0.6/7).

    It looks like some hose has been mixed up for some reason. Will have a play tomorrow.

    So I presume it will be safe to use the FBU method as long as I keep my eyes on the boost gauge. Also where I can get a T crossing from? Halfords may be?? or will I need to go back to Nissan.

    You shouldn't be upping boost beyond 0.8 bar (11.5psi) unless you get a remap. It'll be detting its tits off otherwise...

    Thanks for that I will keep my eyes on the boost gauge.

    Do you think I should get a Boost valve from Bren?

    Thanks Nicely ,

    I have amend the hoses according to your diagram and now torque seems much better and I am getting 0.6 bar boost.

    But I still think I am running at a lower boost than I should. Except for the solenoid and Actuator, is there anything else that likely to cause the boost to drop (specially at top end).

    Also how can you tell if the solenoid or actuator is faluty?
