View Full Version : Should I be able to boost with blown seals?

Car starts easily... idles rough. When I rev the car some the blow off valve vents pretty soundly like normal. I need to make a video of it...

If your car is running, and the exhaust is making the turbo spin, and you don't have a massive boost leak, then you can make boost. If it starts easily then it is probably not a compression issue. But guess what, it would probably take less time to test the compression than it would to make a video of the noise. Have you checked your TPS sensors? Have you checked your idle adjustment? You know, all of the things that people are going to suggest you do, regardless of whether or not you post a video.

I think I detonated though. I was going pretty fast on the autobahn then let go of the gas and moved over to slow down a little because of fog then I think I heard a pop and then loss of some power. Thanks though and I will do it eventually... pretty cold in the garage still haha!
Oh and I cried like a baby hehe.
