    I've been feeling like my 14b 2g was lacking in the power department. So I started looking around for problems and I found that my hks bov was spinning freely on the flange. I took the o ring out and installed it with the snap ring only. It's super tight on there now and tested it for a boost leak with soapy water. I found none. The bov is now sounding great! While I had that intercooler pipe off I found a huge cut in the pipe that a previous owner slapped a piece of gorilla tape over. Well the tape was doing nothing and it was ripped anyways. So I temporarily taped it back with multiple revolutions of duct tape. I went for a test drive and I was floored at how much more power I felt kick in. :dsm::hellyeah:LOL:thumb: It felt great to not experience the sudden power loss at 5k rpm like I had been. Tonight I fixed the high 2k rpm warm idle issue by loosening the 2 10mm throttle cable bolts while the car was running and at operating temp. I loosened the bolt closest to the driver side first. As soon as I loosened the last one the cable instantly relaxed and my rpm dropped down to around 750 or 800rpm. I was super stoked about that. :D I snugged the 10mm bolts and went for a test drive. It was a nice experience, however I accidentally ran over a corn snake and my car was chased by a dog. :ohdamn:

    At least now you are able to outrun the snake and the dog :thumb:
    Glad the car is running better. A BLT is probably in order so that all the leaks are taken car of.

    Pictures and ask @JusMX141, our resident Turbo guru! He is a good man to help out on turbo related questions and an overall great guy. We have a thread called "Questions for Justin", find it and post up your question. :thumb: The housing will tell us something but the inside is what makes the difference. If it is a 16 then it has come off of a Evo or is a Chinese knockoff, hopefully the first.
    Welcome to the forum also! Glad to have some close people on board!

    all you have to do to tell is pop off your intake and look at the compressor wheel, that'll tell you right away.

    What should I be looking for once the intake is off?
