I had been doing a lot of work that involved taking the stock air box out and removing/installing it was a major pain. So I decided to put a cone filter on for the time being. Well, I loved the sound of the engine/diverter valve too much to go back to stock, so I built a heat shield.
I think it...
I've been having this problem for a couple days now.... when I step on it, it will hit desired (set) boost but then fall off a good ten pounds and continue to fall as the rpm's climb.
I've done a boost leak test, no leaks.
I've checked vacuum lines to BOV and Waste-gate...

Gearheads can debate until they throw a rod, but the fact remains that Porsche made a better track performance car than either AMC or Chevrolet did between the 1960s and 80s. That Porsche? The 911.
That’s why Michael Essa and Nick Richards, co-owners of GSR Autosport, just might have a leg up...

So here it is, I replaced my old leaky valve cover gasket with a new OEM one, RTV, torqued it down to spec. 03 1.8t 5spd. I am still getting oil coming out the back of the cover. I just changed out the puck valve on advice that it might be the cause, nope not it. The old and new...
So after 3 days of wrenching and fabricating, I got my new 3 in exhaust system made, and holy shit what a difference! Full boost comes on at about 3800-4000 instead of 5000 RPM. Also, now it'll boost well past 25 PSI. For the first time I actually had to let off the throttle to keep from...

I hooked up my pressure gauge and my thoughts were confirmed, HORRIBLE boost leak. It would spike at 3psi and die immediately.
So today I spent $6.49 at the local hardware store and made this:
