Ok, well it is 3:20 am and I just finished trouble shooting a boost issue that I was having during my tunes. The car was hitting 25+ psi in 2nd gear. Way higher than Phatron was looking for. I pulled the top mount off, checked for crimped wires, checked to see if the EBCS was inncorrectly connect and found nothing. I started to consider that the EBCS went down and I needed to install the OEM one to test to make sure. But I didn't.

I then realized, hey maybe the wire for the boost controller from the meth kit was not done correctly. Bingo!!! An orange wire that was mistaken for a brown wire was used to connect the controller to the EBCS. I took the connection apart and resoldered the right wire on. Went for a test drive and bingo. Back in business. The pressure dropped to 15 PSI.

That was not a fun scare.

Big thanks to Jeff Howerton at Howerton Engineering!!!! This morning he helped with getting us off the ground at 8 am his time and then responded to my questions tonight at 1 am his time. He is in California. I told him what I thought and he was able to confirm it.
