Car is not making boost.

  • MAF Deadlined at 35x plugged in and 55x unplugged
  • car is requesting boost but not making it.
  • Haven't installed 3 bar yet (will do tomorrow)..
  • reclocked the turbo from up position (towards intake) to down position like factory when i received it.

will any of these affect boost?

Malone stage 5
520's
11mm

Is the ecm you installed programmed for a 2.5 bar or 3 bar map? It will make a difference. Also, what hardware is your ecm tuned for, and is what you listed the hardware that's installed? Is it really a stage 2 Malone?

You HAVE to match the map sensor to the calibration in the ecu for proper turbo operation.

Yeah definitely have to install that with it, otherwise it'll be a dog turd on power with no boost, cause it thinks it's getting all the boost, when it isn't.

If after you install 3bar sensor it doesn't make boost, take a look at what you have changed when you reclocked the turbo. Check basic settings on channel 11 to see if you have at least 100mbar difference (ideal is like 120+).
