Turning Up Boost On 1997 850

Recommended Posts

hey I was wonder if any one has come into the same problem I have. I got a 1997 850 turbo AWD, and I have stucka boost gauge and manual boost controller on it this week. It runs fine when I barely turn up the boost from 5 psi, though When I hit about 7 the computer kicks. I am looking to turn it up to about 10 psi and apparently that is safe with the stock ecu programing. There is a solenoid valve near the wastegate that is hooked up to the vacuum lines, so my buddy and I are figuring that it is sensing the over boost and sending the info to the computer and is venting the boost and going to safe boost mode. Which is like 2 psi, which sucks. We are figuring that we should be about to just cheat the system by by passing the solenoid and just watching the boost gauge to make sure there isn't any over boost. If anyone has run into this problem and knows what is safe to do, any info would be greatly appreciated.

Peace,

This will be done by either opening the wastegate as much as possible in order to lower the boost or if the wastegate rod is turned so much that boost can not be controlled, the ECM will cut spark and fuel in order to lower the engine performance.
