Just ordered some front b1 brake discs and 4000 yellow pads plus a forge turbo actuator with purple spring so that will be fun to fit.

Anyone fitted one them selfs??

Mate this job isn’t too bad just a bit fiddly…

Wipers and scuttle panels off.
Crossover pipe off.
Loosen turbo heatshield.
Remove the turbo oil pipe banjo bolt if it’s in the way of the top 10mm actuator bracket mounting bolt.
Undo the actuator arm (10mm spanner).
Undo the two 10mm actuator bracket mounting bolts.
Actuator should now be loose and using a pair of pliers loosen the clamp and pull the rubber hose off or if easier disconnect the hose from the boost solenoid end.

Refitting is the reverse apart from before you connect the actuator arm you need to pre load to 8.5psi depending what map you’re running. Do you have a mityvac or something similar to set the pre load?

This is all from memory so if I’ve missed something I apologise……

Well I started at 7 and finished at 11!! All is working went from the top and bottom as some of the bolts was better to get to. Still not hitting full boost and only 5rpm on modx but the other maps work fine so I think my modx map is a bit funny

Going to call dreamscience Monday see what they say or I may try Collins performance

So I called Dreamscience Monday about not getting over 5krpm on modx, Guy told me could be the clutch switch so after looking on seems like it could be that.

So ordered a new one a a new blower resister as my blower started being **** one 1 2 and 3
