Its bloody cold out and I don't really care right now, but the last few days I have had a low boost issue.

ECU doesn't matter if its the stock tune or a mikeD stage3.

Boost comes on slow and never really gets above 7psi. Today my boost gauge decided to unplug it self (electric side) but thats how it was acting and it feels the same today. I have to go dig up a BPC from one of the boxes but I have a feeling the waste gate fell off. Is there anyway to be sure with out pulling the DP off?

I don't think its a hose thats off. I glance around the other day and everything looks good, besides its so consistently ~7psi max and slow to build that I think it may be the BPC but my gut says waste gate.

Thoughts?

Base boost would put you at around 7 psi. Base boost would occur with a failing BPC.

If there is an issue with the wastegate there is a chance it could result in a 7 psi max, but that would be a coincidence.
