Hi my name is Dan I have two Dodge Daytona t1's love the cars one is in great shape the other I'm working on. Right now I am I the process of sealing the engine out because when I bought the car it had a bad rod knock. So I found a new one for it on Craigslist that only had 61000 mile also a 2.5 t1 it was out of a 1989 Daytona cs._

I'm having problems finding how to post new threads. The motor I'm putting in my1990 Daytona is a 1989 just wondering if I'm going to need to transfer the stuff over from my 1990 engine they are both 2.5 turbos

If you're sure the vacuum lines are all on and are right,then you need to check to make sure the wastegate arm is'nt rusted shut. If you can--put a little regulated(no more than15-20 psi)air pressure to the wastegate actuater can and see if the arm moves.If it doesn't then you either need a new actuater or loosen the Wastegate arm by spraying some PB Blaster,Kroil,or WD 40 on it and "work"it to free it up.
