    Won't hit boost?

    Hey peeps. Quick question I am hoping someone knows the answer to this.

    My friend has a wrx with aftermarket turbo. Now he has a short ram intake. Why is it that when the sensor for the intake is plugged in he can't hit boost but when it is out he can??? But also it feels slower with the sensor unplugged to when it was plugged in and it was boosting.

    Pls anyone who knows the answer to this help cause I am confused.....

    What sensor for the intake? Do you mean the MAF?

    Try disconnecting the battery cables, and touching the leads together. I always have this problem in my Jetta whenever the throttle body or MAF plugs get unhooked. Let it sit unplugged for 15 minutes too..

    Yea it is in right. Because when it was plugged in it was boosting hard! and then one day it just stopped boosting.
