Make sure all your clamps are tight.

Did you replace the o-ring where the compressor meets the intake spider?

Re: HELP PLEASE, no boost,black smoke

I took off the IC tubes,clear.I flushed water thru the intercooler,it flowed good,then blew out with hot pipe connected and cold pipe disconnected at intercooler started engine to blow out excess water. If a rag is in the IC,how can I get it out?
Thanks for replying

Re: HELP PLEASE, no boost,black smoke

I went over the entire system,rechecking all connectors,clamps,but I did not replace the large o'ring,it seemed OK,I don't think it could create my problem.My first inclination,was,that I left a rag in the IC pipe.That is why I took it all apart.

Re: HELP PLEASE, no boost,black smoke

Did you put the red line back on the wastegate?

Did you hook the rod back onto the EBPV?

Re: HELP PLEASE, no boost,black smoke

Did you put red rags on top of the heads? maybe put the spyder down without taking one out?

Re: HELP PLEASE, no boost,black smoke

With all the replies,I found the problem.The actuator arm came off the waste gate valve pin.
Thanks again, to all who replied
