  1. Which Turbo Do I Have in my 1998 900 SE?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Dear Friends: Ebay has a decent-looking new wastegate, and I am wondering if it will fit my car. The seller asked me if I have a Garrett TB 2559 turbo in my 1998 900 SE. Also, their wastegate is spec 0.35 bar / 5-6 psi. Is this right? HELP ME. My original wastegate is rusty and sticky. It's...
  2. Wastegate Helper Spring Works!

    C900 Workshop
    So my base boost was pretty sad, barely into the yellow, and I narrowed it down to a tired wastegate actuator. I ended up picking up a spring set from napa for 6 dollars and used a spring that was as close to the one Peva showed he had used on his: My bracket didn't look anything like...
  3. Wastegate Actuator Question

    C900 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    Ive narrowed down my turbo issues on my 92 turbo to the wastegate actuator. I'm going to pick up a kinugawa one here: http://shopping.kinugawaturbo.com/ki...184-02000.aspx My questions are, 1) can I go with a .8 or 1 bar spring with an otherwise stock setup or will I be running too lean? 2)...

  12. Overboost Problem Solved!

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Good news, after a few misdiagnoses, I have finally fixed the overboost issue on my T5 9-3. My searches and posts originally had me thinking it was the BPC. I attempted to clean BPC using WD-40, and giving it a few good taps to free up the valve; however, that didn't work. Next, I purchased an...

    if you have successfully done one or more of these mods, any advice would be appreciated. Background on my car: 1986 900T with 208k miles. 1) Best place to install Manuel Boost control.
