    Leak or something?

    Hello everyone! im new here. can't find my awnser im looking for so i made a post..


    So here's the problem, i have a 2002 wrx and before i changed my up pipe i had problems with the boost. On my gauge it usaly (when i first got it) stayed between 0.5 and .-1 towards the middle. Now its at atleast close to 0.5. And when i accelerate i hear this annoying whistle noise ( not the turbo sound) but its in that area. I just changed my up pipe for a performance one and still that sound is there also the boost is not corrected to what it was before the problem. Also going into second gear i feel a loss of power.

    What can be the problem?

    Thank you.
    Dave

    You have to use new gaskets when you do the UP - you can search youtube and listen to UP leaks.

    Either that or maybe one of your hoses is not secure between the turbo, intercooler, and or throttle body.

    I would agree, check all your gaskets near the turbo, and the vacuum lines as well.

    Regardless, unless he used the dealer's gaskets or a high quality substitute that is where I would start.


    Sound like this?

    Sort of, but only when i start driving or depending on rpm. The gaskets are new, installed the part at a shop that only tunes subies. I unno i'll check the vaccum's any clue where i can get a diagram?

    Then they probably didn't get your intercooler hoses back on correctly.
