Start with a visual inspection! Are there any chaffed/crushed areas?

Shorts are hard to diagnose, but easy to visually spot (generally). Broken connections are easier to find with a multimeter. Intermittant connections are the worst. :(

Good luck.

too much boost is the problem now.im hitting 1.40-1.50 bar then backed off.scary.i dont know if a boost controller will help control this boost problem.everything is hooked up right and even the factory tvsv is still hook up too
any help?

that will be from 20-22 psi.
