I've experienced this many times, when my car is idling it'd sound like a tractor. Sound occurs quite frequently and some days it'd sound perfectly fine. When i release the clutch to the clutch point and give gas it goes away.
I've done a few research and found out it had...
Had my spec R since March 2011. Engine and breathing all standard until a week ago.
Since maybe November it has not been making standard boost and has felt quite flat and a bit unresponsive on the throttle.
I have spent a lot of time looking for boost leaks, and last week fitted a new blitz...
I've sort-of fitted a Profec B Spec 2 today, and could do with a bit of help with where the hoses should all be plumbed in.
I went off the 'Actuator type' instruction / diagram in the manual, as I don't have the factory boost solenoid valve. see below.
And it says to T-piece...
Today i noticed whilst coming on boost, the avc-r boost solenoid is 'clicking'. has anyone experienced this before? is the solenoid defective? & if it is, where can i locate a replacement ASAP before mapping in mid October.
hi im after a few bits :)
n/s and o/s front wings - any colour but preferbly blue
the peice near the gear stick which holds the gaitor.
boost solenoid (i have a gizzmo boost controller)
think thats it at the moment :cool:
Slight change of plan in one of my projects means that I have a VVT sprocket up for sale. I am going HKS Cams with standard pullies etc.
It has done 37k with no noise what so ever, you can even have the solenoid with it.
No idea what it's worth so I'll say £150 due to low mileage and see what...
I fitted my greddy boost controller and fuel pump today no problems really!
drove the car and have now kind of got the controller set up @ low boost till its mapped but have noticed a clicking sound when touching boost when i left the cinema tonight, it wasnt doing it before when the...
Hi guys, unfortunatly I have completly lost it with fitting an EBC to my car!! I got a Greddy profec b spec 2 off my mate, fitted it.....nothing!! It was fitted correctly but whatever settings I used I couldnt get any difference in boost! So I assumed it was the solenoid and bought another one...
Howdy folks :wave:
Just need the usual S15OC expert advice please lol...
Purchased the Gizzmo MS-IBC Boost Controller which arrived yesterday (don't laugh - not paying Profec B prices or having to wait ages for one to arrive and this item's highly recommended by Driftworks who use it in...
Had my car and boost settings setup by Jez ( ), I managed to damage the wire from my Solenoid to the main unit in the car, this caused my boost to run at around stock (slightly less - 0.7bar) from the 1+bar it had been.
I got a replacement wire, made no difference.
I then replaced the...
Right i've been reading lots and lots of threads on this but the more I read, the more I get confused!!!
I fitted the solenoid how I think is correct, and tried tuning it! unfortuantly what ever I do on the boost controller it doesnt really make a difference. If I set them all silly...
Hi, :wave: I have a standard S15 but the boost solenoid isn't connected to the turbo :confused: . It has a pipe running straight from the boost actuator to ic piping. How do i set it up so that the boost solenoid is working again. Thanks for any help! :thumbs:
Guys, Looking for a bit of input:
I fitted a new rad a while ago and tried to tap into the cable from my Profec B controller to solenoid, but i knackered the wire. Since then the car has boosted slowely to around 0.7bar.
I changed the wire, which made no difference, so i tried another...
If anyone has their stock boost solenoid laying around and no longer needs it Id be happy to take it off their hands.
Would really like one of these before the weekend, but this might be pushing it.
Anything else thats cheap and suitable will be considered too.
