get a bee*r and a pressure switch. put switch on clutch and set rpm to 3500 rpm. then when you dip the clutch and keep your foot down it will keep spooling, wont rev out and will sound awesome. or you could put a gear on the dizzy and a motor with a switch on accelerator and rpm to activate it to retard ignition and activate 5th injector

was having problems with my boosting peakimg to high and found out wat was wrng after...it seemed tht the info i found out abut my actuator was wrng..i tested it by making up a peice of pipe wit a tyre valve on one side and sloting de other side onto the actuator and bring up the pressure till the wastegate opens fully and thn bringing de pressure bck dwn till it starts to close and it seems tht the wastegate is to open fully at 20 psi so i chect the ct9 one and it was .4 so i made between the 2 of thm a adjustable actuator Smile


meassured up the ct9 to wer it fits proper and redrilled the bracket on it it thn chopped the arm jst the rite size to fit


screwed off the old t15 actuator adjustor




driiled out the adjustor as the ct9 arm as it ticker


and tapped and died both of them


scwred thm toghter Smile


and job done Smile



im on the look out now for the high/low off a glanza if anyone has one as close to free Smile

and cud anyone shed sum light on the how the actuator vacuum ports are run for high/low

switch (rocker switch so it cant be switched by mistake)
and a pipe of pipe and a relay

alfa acis solienid


using a rocker switch to be on the safe side so it cant be hit by mistake

all bits put toghter Smile


and found the perfect mounting point wer the water bottle used to be Smile

ahh cool, i though it literally just bled of air without control Razz If you had a boost switch you could just set it so that the solenoid is open at low boost and then the solenoid stays closed until .7 bar on high boost
