HI I have been having a problem since I got my ecu chipped with the giac program and installed a boost gauge I will hit full boost then instead of it holding it will start dropping. I have checked most vac lines my vac at idle is 19 and I just replaced the N75 valve and it seemed to hold pressure better and more constant but still wont hold it at full boost @ WOT. If anyone has idea's please let me know. I want to start by saying I ve been working on car and used many forums so I know what the rules and how it works and I do use the search button a lot if I need to figure something out but for something it's easier putting a post up.


Thanks

check all vac lines...check valves need to be inspected as well...SAI as well

inspect those check valves though...they are most likely your problem. chipped k03 should spike 18 start to die off around 4800-5200 rpm and you should hold about 10-14psi til almost red line...what boost levels are you seeing?

it will spike up to 18/20 psi some times then drop towards 15 almost right away then continues to drop towards 10psi I can load a video to show you today! I also notice it when the car is been really warm for a while.

Here are some video's I couldn't do much more then that because there is a lot of cops in my area that just looking to nail someone for excessive acceleration or speeding

your boost looks okay... if you are running stock inlet pipes and intercooler piping that looks right...the k03 is such a small turbo it cant hold boost that long...on my k03 before it blew it was holding 11psi until 5500rpm then i would shift.

ok I have had a turbo car in the past and it just didn't seem right! I rather check. It sometimes stutters at full boost could the waste gate be going or fuel pump? I replaced all coils and plugs so its not a miss fire.

stutter? is it a slight bump in the rpm or does the car bog down? gotta be specific to find the problem...it could be about 10 different things

car doesn't bog down it's like a very quick miss fire without causing a check engine light. It only happen sometimes. The boost gauge just bumps down and you feel a little bump. Kinda hard to explain

they are pre-gapped and I checked them of course. The fuel filter not sure. I just got the car so Ill have to look into that.
