    Would this explain why my car is only pushing 3 to 5 psi?

    Also how would I tell if this is bad?

    ^^ It might be the reason. Have a buddy around you to switch it out to see if it clears the issue up ?

    Might be the easiest and best bet.

    A BCS swap isn't too difficult to do - figure around 10 minutes to swap.

    Another option is to put the car into test mode (the same configuration you'd use to flash a car). Turn the key to "ON" (but don't start it). Go to the front passenger strut, and see if the BCS "clicks". If it does, then you're good.


    There are other things that can cause you not to reach peak boost, but we can go through that if we find out the BCS is good.
