  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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!
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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?
  10. 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!
  11. 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!
  12. Bought a TPS actuator off of him a while back and it was shipped quick and wrapped nicely! Thanks! Easy to deal with for sure.
  13. Niko was great to deal with. As soon as I paid the parts were shipped and I got them in no time at all. I would deal with him again for sure everything was totally painless and he kept me in the loop with everything going on with PM's. Thanks Niko!
  14. Hey sorry, I have been busy didn't see you had asked Octane. I was able to save most of the seals, the other ones I had to essentially fabricate using other seals (those including the door handle and lock cylinder rubbers)
  15. Thank you! That's a great idea I hadn't even thought of! I tend to forget about all the information we have available to us. I will look now and see what I can dig up.
