No boost. Who to take it to?

Fixed! Made a trip to Ivo @ Columbus Automotive and he had me all sorted out. Very knowledgable and friendly guy! Definately will be going back for future jobs/diagnostics.

Had my downpipes installed as well when I was there. Unfortunately one of my o2 sensor's thread stripped when being uninstalled from the old OEM downpipes. Had to have one replaced on top of labor costs @ $270

Did you clear your CEL and read the code? Street Xtreme in Markham seem to be a good group of guys, they did my car and a couple others on this forum.

Did you plug boost sensor back in? My brother install his and he forgot to plug and ran bad.

Check wire to boost sensor on pipe.

I've checked all the connections on the cold side (side that I touched during CP+BOV install) and every connection seems nice and tight.

I'm driving around with no boost and its not fun! I want to take it to a shop/mechanic who knows what they are doing to take a look (check vaccuum lines, pressure test, possibly smoke test?).

I am aware of RMP Motors / Ivo@Columbus, but they are pretty far west to me. Could anyone recommend other shops/mechanics that they have dealt before???

Thanks guys!

Clear all codes and try again. If you have a boost leak you should get another code. Make sure the CP is installed correctly and you plugged everything back in, including the TMAP sensor.
