    Low boost again. Part 45

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    So been fighting the check engine light monster. So after a silicone evap hose kit, water pump, timing belt, el cheapo diverter valve, 034 billet diverter valve. Throwing low boost now that it's warm out. Did it in fall then I threw in the diverter and it mostly stopped. Got it again on some warmer days. But now that summers here I can't even drive it at all without low boost coming up. Seems to happen any time I fall below 3k rpm and speed up over it engine light kicks on. But now that it's hotter out it throws any time I drive. I was thinking n75 but sick of throwing money at this thing and the more I read the more I am unsure. 1.8t quattro 5 speed, about 140k mi. Any help is much appreciated.

    You most likely have a leak somewhere in there. ID get a smoke check done to pinpoint all of the leaks. If funds are low then get some spray and hunt for the leak (Doesn't always find it).

    So I've done some looking, and some searching here. So dont yell at me too much, i realise this has to have been asked a million times but i cant find a ton. its late and my eyes hurt. Are there any cheaper (not 600$) stock replacement turbos out there? Like are there any aftermarket brands that are reliable enough for another 60k? I was looking for used turbos but a good 90% of them already have 120k on em which is where mine failed. I really dont want to buy a turbo and have to do this again in two months. I also cant justify spending 650 for a borg warner when the car is worth 1500 tops.

    Midwestturbo has rebuild kits for $75 and CHRAs for $350. Another cheap option is Rock Auto. $389.79 with no core charge is the most economical choice there.
