Default no boost!!!!!!!

Ok so i just installed my utec last night, along with a vf39, sti pinks, fuel pump, and tmic. it idled fine but when driving, it gave me almost no boost, probably even less than stock. I was running it on stock setting. I think that might be it but wanted to confirm it by asking you guys first. thanks.

Switch the small tubes on the turbo around(make sure the one with the metal bb inside is going to the turbo and not the wastegate actuator).

peace

I'd think it has something to do with the boost controller, but I dunno.

^^^^^^^^^^^
you shouldnt have installed the apexi avc-r...or at least you won't need it for too long
turboxs is actually working on that same thing for your utec upgrade so you just use the utec to control gear specific boost
