    Blown turbo?

    I have no clue whats going with my car at all. It will barely hit 5 psi and runs extremely rich when boost should kick on 8.5 to 9 from 2500 to 3000 rpms to be exact. No I do not have a vta blow off valve yes it is aftermarket but is recirculated. The mods I have are turboxs uppipe, turboxs tbe, cobb ap v2, greddy fmic, with a pdx tuning stage 2 cobb map tuned for a fmic, and a hks ssqv. Everything has been running good up until now. Any answers will be deeply appreciated.

    an hks ssqv is not a recirculating blow off valve.

    Also an hks ssqv is a recirc when you put the recirc fitting in it which is what I did.

    Could be a boost leak.

    I am by no means any kind of expert, but that sounds like a boost leak to me. If the turbo is blown, then you're most likely going to hear some problems with it before.

    It was a major boost leak one of my intercooler couplers had a hole in it about the size of a pinky. From when it busted off my intercooler just didn't notice it cause it was at night when I was trying to fix it. Went and bought a new vibrant coupler put it on and works perfectly know. Probably going to go by all new vibrant couplers and replace all of them. So I don't have to worry about anymore blowing apart on me again. Thanks for the input guys really appreciate it.
