Car drove great for about 2-3000 miles after all the mods.
here is the prob. Maybe about 2000 miles ago i was on the high way and doing about 80 i put my foot down a little or all the way it dosnt matter, and the boost creeps up to 1.1 (around ther is pretty normal) then goes down to .05, then back up to 1.2ish then, then back down then back up then back down, then up, then down then up then...well you get the point. this continues for how ever long i am on the gas. Sometimes while its bouncing like that, it will boost crazy high, like 1.3-1.4, but it could just be the analog factory gauge not able to stop on a dime like that.you can feel the car pull hard then soft, then hard then soft. some times if i hit the gas hard or soft it boosts fine and steady. i would say its 50/50.
so i have been playing around with it and it is 3rd-4th-and 5th only. cant get it to do it in 1st or 2nd. i do belive some days is worse then other. meaning i will drive 50-100 miles on the high way and it may do it once if at all. then i will drive the same miles a couple days later and it will do it 50% of the time.
Here is what i have done:
First check all my hoses for leaks found nothing and have checked like 10 times. plus if it was a leak. it would be a constant problem all the time in all gears...right?
i put the car in test mode and cleaned the solenoid with elec part cleaner.
Other then that i dont know what else to do. i dont know anyone else with this car so i cant swap the solenoid out. i have read about it happening to 2 other people but they dont update the thread when and if they fixed hit. its killing me.
