Question: After Install UICP...

For you MBC users out there: WHen you installed your aftermarket UICP, did your preset boost go up, or go down? Im pretty sure I got another boost leak on my hands because after my install, my boost went from like 16 to like 10. My boost leak tester is on loan so I wont know until I get it back.

BTW, the Dejon 1G non-abs pipes are HUGE, its a PITA to work around that giant throttle body elbow, it was pretty tough to put the bolts in around the elbow.

My boost went up.

I remember it raising to 15-18psi when I installed a Dave Brode UICP and a 1g BOV.

Make sure all your connections are tight.

I checked them all, pretty tight. But i didnt want to over torque my throttle body elbow, I was worried I might strip the intake manifold threads.

How much torque (ft/lbs) should I apply the throttle body elbow bolts and nuts?

How bout the BOV bolts?
