Like anyone, I have learned that if something can go wrong it will. Turbo cars have a lot of links in the chain and its just a matter of time before one of them breaks. The quest to save my motor when something does go wrong is never ending and I want to share my most recent thought.
As we all know, If the waste gate sticks shut, it will overboost almost immediately. This will blow a stock motor before ya have a chance to get off the throttle.
Option 1: install a T into the line going to BOV. Put a MBC into the tee so when manifold pressure to the BOV goes over a set psi (7 for me) it will open the line, allowing the pressure in the charge pipe to open the BOV, saving my motor long enough for me to get off the gas: .·:*¨¨*:·.Black Hallman Pro Manual Boost Controller MBC | eBay
Option 2: install a "Go Fast Bits Turbo Fuse
" inline to the BOV which will do similar and cut pressure to BOV if it goes over the set point: GFB TURBO FUSE - Overboost protection valve | eBay
Option 3: Install a pressure switch in the manifold which, when activated, disconnects power to the ignition coils: 1-25 psi Boost Pressure Switch for metanol injections
Option 4: Install a second, (or third or fourth depending on how many you already have) waste gate in case one of them fails.
If anyone has tried one or more of these options, or has a better idea, please share your experiences. Thank you,
