no more boost.......p1088 cel
full exhaust/cai/pro tune since 60k
i replaced my turbo with a 30k mile used unit due to blue smoke coming out of the tailpipe, sure enough, the turbo was bad. put good turbo on and..........
first ride was ok even though i still see smoke but not as bad, only when i'm getting on it, hope its just residual left over in the exhaust, i did a compression check and got around 130psi even accross all four.
second ride, no power, can't even get to neutral boost and has almost no power.
the only cel i get is what i've been getting since i replaced my fuel lines, and thats the p1088 on both.
seems to have better than normal throttle response when in neutral but i often get a loud pop out of the exhaust.................should i check and see if my timing belt skipped a couple teeth?
what else would cause blue smoke? it never blew any smoke at all before the turbo went out.
