Right I had a Dawes fitted to my car but put a new intercooler on today GReddy VSPL looks really good.
Only problem being that the new intercooler has a hard pipe kit but there is no nipple on the hard pipe to the turbo.
I had my Dawes fitted in between the actuator and the turbo nipple but now I have no turbo nipple I dont know where to plumb it in.
Can somebody please help as I don't have a clue where to put it

Cheers

Thats where I have plumbed it into but it was set at 1.1bar but now I am getting fuel cuts but have not moved the settings so didn't want to muck around with it incase I had put it in the wrong place.

Using longer pipes, especially non braided pipes allow for more expansion of the pipes, and so can lead to bigger boost spikes/peaks (thus fuel cuts), if you are not already using them, try braided, eg fuel pipe

This effect will be made worse as non braided pipe warms, it will stretch more

If you tee off from the dump valve pipe, the boost pressure will effectively be manifold pressure and will be slightly lower than what you see at the turbo nipple. There will also be a slightly longer rise time as the pressure has to build through the inlet piping which will expand. You could also get some pressure reduction from the dump valve actuator.

The dawes device will be opening later than it did when connected to the nipple, which may well result in fuel cut inducing boost spikes.

If you can afford it get an electronic controller which should be able to react quicker and provide better boost control.


Cheers,

Simon
