Default HELP! 98 Legacy Gt Just Turbo'd

Yo what up i just got done doin my turbo set up looks awsome & runs like s**t ...... im using a wrx intercooler and a t3 garrett custom uppipe and downpipe.... the only thing that i noticed that looks bad is the charger line from the turbo to the intercooler is kinked.... i car idles ok (untill) you drive it you can hear the turbo spool but NO bov noise... when you come to a stop the car wants to die any idea what i got goin on.....

also right now im babing the car b/c i have no management on the car.... but i cant see that beening the problem b/c it even does the dieing thing when you shift it at 2500rpms at 1/4 throttle......

Engine management. Perfect power is a good piggyback EM setup with pre-made maps that would work fine for your setup I suggest you talk to the guys at Rallitek. www.rallitek.com even if you don't want perfect power, they can probably diagnoss your problem if you tell em whats going on.

How much boost are you running?

Factory 98 MAF, pump, and injectors should be able to add enough fuel for 4-5psi.

Engine management is definately recomended when you can get some.

As for the dying all I can suggest to check is:

1. Possible blown MAF? Check the voltage with a meter.
2. Check all you vacuum lines. You will get all kinds of crappy stuff is one is not connected good. MY RS-T used to die all the time until I found a vacuum leak.

Hope this helps.

Im running 4.5psi with a adjusted wastegate actuator.... i know the top of the purge sensor broke off also the MAF is fine.... let me ask you another question is the where did you connect the bov vacuum line to... i connected mine at the (stock fpr) fuel pressure regulator

also where do i hook up my vortech fmu..... (only using the fmu till i get enough money for a piggy back)

What BOV are you using? You probably have to tighten it
so it doesn't open so easily.
