Anybody who's done the BCS restrictor mod, does your boost gauge act any differently?

My gauge will go all the way up to the top on my first WOT, then up to about 3/4 each consecutive time. It acted normally with the restrictor in. Thoughts?

I guess its un controlled amount of air flow that's causing this? cause I'm sure the restrictor serves a purpose. I on the other hand haven't had any problems :D
Yeah, if you don't call blasting your IC piping off a problem :rolleyes:

BTW, I picked your restrictor up off the sidewalk this morning, just in case, since I pretty much shredded mine. For once, your habit of tossing unnecessary/broken parts on the ground served some good :D

I do burn some oil, and I have my suspicions that it's from the turbo... could be the issue. It's about time for a change, anyway, so I might was well put in some better oil and whatever additive Kyle put in, and hopefully that'll solve this issue. I at least hope it's that simple, or at worst the oil seal on the turbo...

The stock boost guage is not really a boost guage. Its a computer calculated visual. Get a real boost guage and you will see that the restrictor removal has no effect other than 2 psi more boost.

If you cut the wires or remove the BCS solenoid, you will get a CEL. You have to leave it plugged and connected even if you do not even use it.
