I think i have a boost leak around my DV area. I checked to tears but I couldn't find any. Has anyone ever had their baileys fail? It seems like some times when i get on it that it doesn't pull as strong, and sometimes it hauls. i ran a 5.89 caps the other day, and on the next pull I only ran a 6.70. Whats the deal? I hear bit of extra hissing around the turbo.

nope. I'm thinking I will have to get one. It seems like it won't push past 18 psi

how long have you had it? Mine is about year old and holds steady 25-26 psi

I have it for about 2 years

Should I take it back to awe?

have you cleaned it out at all since you bought it?

and as for limitations for holding boost, iirc they are capable of holding 80+ psi reliably

i just cleaned it and it runs a lot better. Turn up my fuel pressure and i'm hauling ass once again. No idea if my fuel mileage still sucks ass though

Bailey's DV-30 wears out quick. I would upgrade or take it to AWE for them to replace it Poop.
