Last year the car developed a whistling noise under WOT. I don’t mean the normal turbo sound either. So I replaced the hoses on the pipe that runs from the intercooler to the throttle body. DIdn’t make a dent.
Today, I replaced the one that connects the turbo to the intercooler, and took it for a spin.
Not only is the whistle just as loud as ever, it won’t build but 4psi of boost, and it doesn’t even accelerate. At all.
For the whistling, I just don’t know. For the slowness, I’m thinking the fuel pressure regulator finally bit the dust. It’s been on it’s way out for years, making cold starts an absolute nightmare.
On the plus side, I did find these neat plug wires in the attic in the garage. Might put them on the Camaro, since I don’t care for the look of the MSDs, they’re way too long, and we broke one. Plus I want to learn how to make wires.
