Question Link Boost Solinoid

Anyone figured out anything on the Boost Solinoid On the LINK? I have installed mine and it is not keeping the boost in the range I want...Is it the LINK Solinoid not working properly or perhaps something else? I set the boost to 130 kPa 4PSI and it is raising up around 8 or 9.....Should I just get a Manual controller temporarily until a fix is available or is there already one?
Thanks,
Chuck

So you are using the Link Solenoid, not the cheaper alternative and having problems? There are a bunch of us using the alternative cheap one but it is not working. I have been working with AMR on this problem with Link USA. Hopefully we will find the problem with this and get that nailked down soon.

AS for the Link Solenoid, your wastegate base might be to high or your wastegate sensitvity might be set to low. Also check to make sure your BOV is not set to hard, this will cause boost spikes. Also check your vacuum lines for leaks or kinks. If you are still having problems contact me or AMR for more help.

I was also going to ask what your wastegate spring is set to.

but perhaps it's an issue of the alternative solenoid not working correctly if that's what you're using.

Im running the solinoid that andrew sent me...(looks just like the one that came up in the last debate about boost solinoids...Black plastic 2 wires and 3 ports on the side)...My wastegate spring is 6.5 is this maybe the problem? And on a blitz blowoff valve how do you make adjustments to the set screw (my instructions are in Japanese) I will call Andrew today to see if it is just a software issue....

A few things.
You are not going to be able to run less than 6.5 PSI w/ that WG spring. The waste gate spring is what determins the min. boost level. The link can increas the boost, but you can't run less than what the spring in your WG is set too.

Yes you are trying to use the cheeper alternative sol. Andrew and Bill are still trying to figure out how to get this one to work.

To adjust the BOV just loosen the lock nut and then turn the screw in the center. out is less resistance and in is more.

I hope that is helpfull.
