good explanation, always wondered that.
the words "race car" spelled backward still spell "race car"?

no that sounds like fuel cut out, what rpm are you at when it happens

Detonation sounds like a spaghetti tin full of rocks. Fuel cut probably doesn't have anything to do with your fuel pump. More likely it's over boost cut, try winding it down a bit and see what happens.

The short shifter isn't any shorter it still sits i the same spot, just has a shorter throw, if you want it shorter, cut a piece out and weld it back together.

It's fuel cut, not your turbo. You have to figure it out, you have a fault,

yeah a friend of mine got her car dyno tuned there.
i noticed something..my car is realllllllllllly down on power.. it hit 12 psi...but felt extremely slow..and was even more laggy then normal:S
OH yeah..i think i found the stock boost solenoid.i will post some pics..could this be the source of the problem? the boost gauge says its hitting betweet 10-12psi when it cuts out..it wasnt doing this before..i have done some permanent damage somewhere possibly?

also..if that is the stock boost soleniod..do i just take out one of those tubes and block it off? one of the tubes have been blocked off already with a screw...which i assume why it was running 9psi before the boost controller..but why all of a sudden would the car be hitting fuel cut when it wasnt before and it feels ALOT slower? hope no permanent damage has been done

if that is the stock boost solenoid..which im guessing it is..how do i disconnect it? just take the remaining tube out and block it? one of the tubes that was already blocked off...so now im sure its the boost solenoid..or is too late and i have already done damage? cause the turbo now feels alot more laggy and has no power at all..it says its hitting 10-12 psi but its not pulling anywhere near as hard as it was..anyone live near the frankston area that wants to come and have a look and test drive it to figure it out?could be a few beers in it for ya:P  lol

nah, that's not it.... looks more like a carbon canister. It would've been sitting between the turbo and manifold.

I'd say fuel pump is the more likey suspect.

oh ok..mm at first i didnt think it would be the boost solenoid...cause it was too long lol..but it has a screw in it blocking it off...so i assumed it must of been..GAH fuel pump..its got no power at all..it says its hitting 10 psi..but there is no way in hell it could be cause its not pulling hard at all..i would saying its doing 0-100 in 8-9 seconds now:(
soo fuel pump u recon? whats a good fuel pump to get? keep in mind im going to upgrade most likely to a gti-r turbo in a month or so

Sounds a bit more like an exhaust (pre turbo) gasket leak. Hard to say.

Fuel pump go for a walbro 255lph or bosch 040, walbro should bea round $160 while the bosch is a tad over 200.

If it was a pre turbo boost leak would it still be making full boost?

also..it was spiking a fair bit before the fuel cutting problems...maybei  should look into a better boost controller also..or could that be cause by a gasket leak also?
iwish i wasnt so retarded with this sort of stuff..its funny cause i have an interview soon for a mechanic apprenticeship lmao

The biggest problem you had was overboosting it. My advice before you go spending money do a compression test, and post the results.

Are you blowing any smoke?
