Post more SVX-T problems

Robert tested it with different boost pressures, without using boost at all and we were still having problems. At around 4500 RPMs it the car would buckle under and just about stop accellerating. Kind of like if there was a plastic bag clogging the intake.

I told Robert I'm bringing it up Friday and I don't want it back till it works. He's done a phenominal job with the car. It ran very nice up in Prescott, but for some reason not down here.

I will continue to have Robert work on the SVX-T and make the stupid thing work. Once I get that done, I think I will have him do the RS.

While the SVX-T isn't running well, I just can't blame Robert. He's trying his best, as seen tonight with a flashlight trying to work on the car in the dark.

Damn car!

Good luck to you and your mechanic.

Problems are understandable, it's not like he is turbocharging a Civic, where all the potential problems have been worked out to the point you can now buy a bolt-on turbo kit.

It can be very difficult being the pioneer. Very frustrating to say the least, are there any more turbo SVX owners around that could help out?
