Was curzing down road last night and decided to open up the daytona and let it breath abit when all of a sudden it started to over boost. I have an ajustable waste gate arm and I thought the last owner said he had it set to around 12 lbs. Anyways ran it down road one more time and watched gauge. It went well past 12 before cutting out engine . Tried it one more time to be sure and it blew apart induction pipe.
.. Any ways not only dose this tell me I have a boost prob. It also tells me a I need to brace induction pipe to hold it together better. Gonna be 18 lb on it soon.
And looking at picture I just notice fan is askew!!!!! WTF
Well hope rain lets off so I can dig into it and see wtfs up.
Took a look at pipe and vac lines and rad fan. When pipe blew it knocked fan off rad. As far as vac line issues. It looks as though i need to just go through whole system to fix dry rot , and routing. I can see some issues that will crop up when I go to 18 lb. BUT CAR WAS PULLING STRONG BEFORE SHUT DOWN!!!! So when I get it right and running a 18 lb . My knees will be knocking after my first drive.
I make two shallow grooves all the way around the intercooler pipe with a dremel, and place the clamp around the area of those grooves, gives a slight edge for the silicon coupler to hold. Simple and worked excellent for me at 14 psi.
Waste gate can vac. line came loose. Replaced Line and cranked down on pipe clamps. seems to run fine now. Guess this tells me that adjustable swing valve arm is not set and that WG is being controled by computer properly. Not sure what T was for, but it is no more!!!
oh gotta love redneck engineering with the screw in the vac line
My cousin bought his second 85 horizon from a guy out in the farms north of the metro area, the damn carb on that thing had so many bolts and screws in the vacuum lines we could have built another motor!
