Having problems with your 2002 Ford SVT Focus ?
I have a focus 2litre zetec with a turbo conversion, it was producing 300 bhp at 17psi, had the turbo reconditioned as it was smoking now max boost on the guage shows about 12 psi.i have checked the boost pipes connections all seem to be tight and there seems to be no leaks. the place that did the work on the turbo say what they did shouldnt affect the boost as they just replaced like for like, any ideas, thanks steve
The wastegate may be mal-adjusted now after fitting the new turbo, it sounds like it is shunting boost pressure down the exhaust thru the wastegate valve which is vacuum operated.
