i pulled out my afm before i cleaned it.. and yea i cleaned it because when i bought my pod i noticed a nice blanket of 5cm worth of black grime and dust.. im thinkin its never been cleaned before since the orange sensor was then black before i sprayed it.. im just gonna buy another afm when i get enough money :(

basically you need to use it to bleed off some of the pressure that the wastegate actuator receives.

I have a very simple set up on mine and it works perfectly.

I just put a T in the boost source for the wastgate actuator, with a hose running form the T to the bleed valve (which i found at Bay Engineering for $14)

Make sure you get a boost guage before you start tweaking. You shouldnt reallg go over 11 - 12psi on your standard turbo if you want it to last.

However whein i got my car it ran an unrestricted 15 -16psi which was fun  :jack:     Now back at a healthy 10psi

the solenoid that you used could you activate it in the car or did you have to adjust it under hood cause my one is activated on a switch in the car

Madzilla -   Na the car came without the factory solenoid and was running unrestricted!

vk - its just under the bonnet now coz I find it works better with less piping, and i dont see the point if i dont want to adjust the boost all the time.    Having said that tho, Ill be buying an electronic unit of some sort in January

To get better power to weight ratio, the cheapest way is always reduce weight, anything not help you go faster, take it out, take the spare wheel and jack out, replace with a tyre puncture repair can.

gtstCruiser: check ur afm sensor for damage (little wire inside). if its broken then your afm is f*cked, if its got crap on it, clean it with some electrical cleaner. then, if its burnt, then its probobaly f*cked.

all it takes is something small to get stuck on it and it will burn. that little wire gets pretty dam hot. thats why it has a mesh on the end of it, dont remove it...
