Hi mate. I am no expert in search things but can tell you that it waqs the clicking sound on my 1990 900 T16 that led to the accurate diagnosis that the APC unit had seen better days! Had the exact symptoms of base boost as you describe. Had a variation of this on my 89 9000 carlsson a couple of weeks ago and changing the black APC unit above the rad cured it in 2 minutes. Then it was all boost and smiles again!! Thats when you slip the Bic pen tuning tip into the middle pipe and watch the neddle edge into the red!! :wink:

Umm, there's better ways to turn up your boost than obstructing the line with a bic pen
