damn that sux..... Well I had to fix a tiny coolant leak that i had on one of the hoses going to my throttle body earlier today after i got home from work. I heard a hissing sound and when i opened the hood it was a little bit smokey. all I did was cut the hose shorter cus it was only leaking past the clamp . That must have been a sign that I need to replace my coolant hoses going to the throttle body since its been a while since i last replaced them.
well ive always had one. its just that i had taken it off a few months ago . well i have to buy new throttle body gaskets nn hopefully that fixes the leaks. my car feels better though. cus of less leaks
heyy guess what I did a boost leak test and i had a few leaks. fixed the ones I was able to but i still have some left on my throttle body. Another thing that I found out why the reason my car is acting wierd at WOT...... Im overboosting for sure . I installed my boost gauge and that shit went up all the way to 18psi and I was only at half throttle .
Yeah well i did attach all of the vacuum hoses back, but the problem is still there thats the thing and it just happened right after the FMIC install so it must be a leak. maybe a cut coupler or sumthing.... car drives perfectly fine during normal driving, even at half throttle it picks up fine thats the wierd thing.... Other than that my install was very easy....... only if you lived closer i would have help u out.... to be honest with you i still dont get it how your having such a hard time with it . i did it with my friend like in 2-3 hours .
If i dont find a solution im going to put my stock SMIC back just to see if the problem is still there cus if it is then I know it aint a boost leak issue
try to take a pic if you can. what i did was put in my fmic with the coupler already in place cus theres wasnt that much room....... Damn right now im trying to figure out a problem of my own cus after I installed my FMIC evrything was great...... until i hit WOT my car picks up but as soon as alot of boost pics up it feels like if i hit a brick wall and my car dont want to go any faster........ stupid DSM . it must be a boost leak though cus i did notice that a few vacuum hoses had popped off . too much pressure maybe. I just haven't taken my time to take a really good inspection....
Well because the fitting is one with the line so in order to still use the same fitting your your going to have to leave a piece of the metal line so you can connect the hose to it. umm you dont really have to do anything to your power steering lines, maybe just push them back a little bit. i didnt move it and it cleared good but thats because I had removed half of the center bracket while doing sum previous mod
