Why am i hitting 22lbs of boost still?
Okay, with the modds in my sig, i am hitting 22lbs of boost at redline. I have taken it into the dealership (very nice guys there) and they have replaced both my "boost solenoid" and my actual boost gauge, yet i still have the problem.
My acceleration seems to be fine and i told them to check the cat but they said there instruments gave them no indication of a clogged catalytic converter.
The mechanic is stumped and when he called the GM techline or whatever, the operator said this and i quote "turbocharger's boost levels can fluctuate in south GA because of the humidty and low altitudes"..........
So apparently my car is turbocharged and is boosting 7 lbs higher than normal because of my location............IDIOTS
Anyway, i have grown tired of bugging the mechanics at the dealership and have decided to take measures into my own hands. I recently ordered the GMPP cat back exhaust sytem. The dealership will be installing it and i am going to ask him to "inspect the cat" whenever he is installing the exhaust.
So my question is, will the tech be able to determine anything by actually looking at the cat with no exhaust on, and if my cat is clogged-will the catback exhaust system help reduce my overboosting??
Thanks for any advice or suggestions ahead of time,
