Mitsubishi Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi,Have you performed a boost leak test yet?
Do you have a boost leak tester and compressor to perform this?
Most people just build their own as they can be made for about $5 from the hardware store. Let me see if I can find a link
This outlines the process for you... otherwise you can find them on ebay etc just for more money:http://www.evolutionm.net/forums/evo-how-tos-installations/339529-how-boost-leak-tester-5-02-a.html
In the mean time, did anything else change that might be relevant leading up to this condition? For example a recent tune change, parts replaced, or hard run etc?
That was all quite a while prior to the problem forming though right?
Absolutely.... lets regroup once you've been able to boost leak test it (connecting at the turbo, and you should be able to hold 20 psi).If you have the ability, I'd like to do a compression test too just to know the internal health of the engine.
Fantastic.Lets get those done for a baseline, then we can get back together here tomorrow (or later if you need more time) and see where we stand before we start getting into more involved checks etc.
No problem at all.If it is a few days, you may get email reminders, some even appearing to come from me; these are automated emails and you can disregard them until you are ready to return.
