  1. So the issue was the fuel pressure regulator, I had another used but good Trilogy Turbos FPR I dropped in, set to the correct pressure, and it worked great. The other one was acting strange, with no intake reference connected it would just right back to the 43PSI I had set it at, but as soon as I attached the reference it would drop to ~35PSI. I don't fully understand how this happens because I thought they were supposed to be somehow spring controlled so that a vacuum wouldn't effect it, only positive pressure. Question is, TechBoy mentioned he had a Trilogy Turbo FPR fail and now it seems I had one fail as well. Is there another FPR I should look at? It appears the one on MKS is sold out as well as the one from SPA Turbos. I can try to wait for them to come back, but just looking for other recommendations as well. Thanks Crash, I am going to do that as a winter project. I will take the output from the main relay and wire it to the coil of another relay, then run a 12AWG wire directly to power the pump.
  2. Thanks for the input everyone! I am going to check a few things this weekend and get back to you. Going to start with ensuring the FPR nut isn't loose and readjusting if necessary. I will also look to see if any of the local parts stores have a fuel filter in stock to replace the engine bay mounted one. I will also be sure to check the voltage at the pump and make sure this is not an issue with supply voltage. Has anyone ever taken the fuel pump off of the main relay and wired it to it's own separate relay? I am thinking about possibly going this route over the winter and running a larger gauge wire to help with any type of voltage drop there might be.
  3. Hello all! Had the car out today (not driving nearly as much as I would like) and on the way to work, about 5 miles, the car ran great and felt strong. On the way home I noticed pulling out of the office that it felt a bit sluggish. Checking my gauges it appeared that fuel pressure was low (~35psi), normally the car is set to run 43psi. Thought it might have been a bad reading until I saw the air/fuel was also reading lean. I kept the car out of boost to get it home, but when on the throttle the fuel pressure would only drop lower. Car has a 17C turbo, 650/950CC injectors, trilogy turbos fuel pressure regulator, and a roughly 4 year old Walbro 255 pump in it. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Fuel is from May as I haven't been driving it much but I find it hard to believe that would be dropping my fuel pressure instead of just decreasing combustion, but I am not an expert.
  4. I have a set I was looking to get rid of, but honestly didn't seem many were interested. They were on my car until I upgraded to my D2 coilovers and worked. The problem is with the factory stuff if you can't promise how much longer it will hold up for... They have been off of my car since 2018. Some overspray on the springs from when I painted it. I can try to get some pics later if you are interested.
  5. Hi all, finally got around to trying a bunch of different variables. As we all know you can only change one thing at a time to make it a valid experiment It seems that anytime I interrupt the boost signal from either the 7.5psi or 10.5psi line off of the solenoid the boost instantly spikes much to high (20+psi). I even tried this with a Hallman Pro RX boost controller (ceramic ball supposed to react quicker to boost changes) and had the same result. For the time being I am going to keep my Hallman boost controller in the car and move the three lines around if I ever want to target a higher boost level. Most of the driving I do with the car I am not driving hard so the factory boost levels keep it in a happy range that will help longevity as well I hope. Thanks for all of the help and let me know if you guys have any other ideas you think I should try before fully writing this off!
  6. Thanks for the replies anyone. I do have a boost gauge and fuel pressure gauge inside the car to help ensure the car is running as expected. The car is currently running the factory boost setup of 7.5psi below 4k rpm and 10.5psi above 4k rpm, I am looking to install boost controllers in each line to increase this perhaps to something like 10psi below 4k rpm, and 13psi about 4k rpm, sorry if I didn't make this clear from the start. Thanks again for all of the good insight on this topic. I have one Hallman MBC and have a friend willing to lend me another for a basic trial run on this to see if I can change the boost independently as Turbo Cary mentioned should be possible.
  7. Sorry didn't feel like going through the whole list (used to be in my signature before the server got wiped out). Walbro 255, upgrade injectors, Trilogy Turbos FPR, Mallory ignition coil, wideband, 1G MAF, and a few other supporting mods. I have made sure the car is running 100% before trying to push any further. I am talking about trying to place a MBC on the 7.5psi part of the wastegate, and another MBC on the 10.5psi part of the wastegate. Curious if anyone has experimented with this in the past as an interesting way to keep the factory "two stage" operational but up the boost on such. -Jeff
  8. That's what I was wondering if using the factory setup of the 3 port waste gate and the boost "crossover" at 4000RPM if I could add manual boost controllers into the lines to the wastegate to increase my pressure in each stage. It seems to make sense in my head at least. I had never heard of a ProFec before but it seems to be a powerful little tool.
  9. I tried searching for this but I was unable to find anything, possibly searching the wrong terms. 1989 Conquest TSi wondering if I could possibly use the factory two stage boost control and three port waste gate with a manual boost controller to each port. Perhaps do something like like 10psi under 4k rpm, and 13 above 4k rpm. Has anyone tried this in the past? Curious if it would be possible. 17C turbo and TBI installed on the car. Thanks
  10. Hey guys, just curious if anyone have an A/C delete duct they are willing to part with. I checked the for sale saw nothing so let's give this a shot! Thanks!
  11. Sorry guys! Took forever I know, busy looking for houses and all the fun stuff that goes along with that! Enjoy! I have a few more I will try to snag and get up eventually. It was a great show, maybe next year we can get a few more StarQuests there! http://i521.photobucket.com/albums/w337/FieroGTFan/IMG_20150816_144503_zpsvcfqwgpa.jpg http://i521.photobucket.com/albums/w337/FieroGTFan/IMG_20150816_144512_zpsctajoqlc.jpg http://i521.photobucket.com/albums/w337/FieroGTFan/IMG_20150816_144527_zpshlndboot.jpg http://i521.photobucket.com/albums/w337/FieroGTFan/IMG_20150816_144427_zps1u5vzdno.jpg http://i521.photobucket.com/albums/w337/FieroGTFan/IMG_20150816_144438_zpsp2faie6n.jpg http://i521.photobucket.com/albums/w337/FieroGTFan/IMG_20150816_144449_zps8l3lzq7p.jpg
  12. I know we both snapped a few, I will try to get them up as soon as possible! It was a great show thanks for putting it together. Unfortunately I had to run pretty quick after and didn't get to say much.
  13. I'll be there! Going to try to get the Quest together in time! If not I will be there just to look around, anything I need to do for registration?
  14. Yes yes yes! N8 kicks butt man! Anything you need he is your man, not only a great guy but great customer service, any issues or questions he is right there to help, now I just need to save the money to buy everything else I want the quality is great, everything arrived very fast and the parts look better than imagined. Thanks!
  15. Bought a bunch of goodies off of him. He shipped them very quick and they were wrapped up very nicely! Would buy from again when I find another great deal thanks!
