    Nice diagrams Garry - it might be worth labelling the "air intake hose" as the pre-turbo hose or something similar? For a second I was reading the diagram back to front as I saw air intake hose and assumed it was the boost reference point rather than the solenoid waste outlet point. Also worth mentioning is that if you have a facelift auto you will almost certainly need to refer to the manual diagrams, not the auto with tcl. (Unless your name is Nev.) Diagram 3 for me! :D

    The reason i have posted this information is because at every dyno day i have attended there is always 2 or 3 people that have trouble with boost control on the dyno. and it is either a faulty boost solenoid or the solenoid is plumbed in wrong. with the info provided able there is no reason why anyone should turn up to a dyno for a tuning session or a power run with a boost control issue. it is embarrassing to be honest, how frequently this happens.

    this info is a copy and paste but there are so many questions about boost control i thought i would post it up as it sensible info. there is a link to a video at the bottom. Today we're talking about something that is as important as boost itself, and that something is control and we will cover all the boost control setups, starting with the most basic level 1 setup and proceeding to the most complex and performance oriented level. LEVEL 1 BOOST CONTROL - wastegate + wastegate...

    Still have my leggie, sits in the shed, comes out for its yearly rego inspection and the very occasional track day. Got a new wagon for my birthday last year, as good as it is, I prefer the legnum, I still have a real soft spot for it

    Still here, still lurking. Since the silver Legnum and the red Legnum, I've had a Nissan Stagea (fun but not quite as fun as the VR4), Volvo V70, slightly less fun but more interior equipment and WAY easier to live with. Currently have the wife's 2009 Mondeo 2.2TDCi. Super smooth, very comfortable, not exactly a slouch and a lovely car to be in. And for myself, I now have The Fridge which is my fun and practical family car! Mitsubishi RVR Hyper Sports Gear R.

    Did you investigate the fault code? A flashing N light means the TCU is putting the box in safe mode because it has seen a problem - that problem should be stored as a code. Do not use a code reader - do the flashy dash method as described a few posts up.

    Still got mine. It's not been a daily for years - I was using a van for work. It would come out on evenings and weekends and it has been rare that it has hit 5000 miles in a year. However my job changed in February and I started commuting in it - nearly 40 miles a day taking a fair chunk of two hours in total. The turbos started smoking a little and the stiff suspension and lightweight flywheel/stage 3 clutch meant stop start traffic and speedhumps in Birmingham were just not fun. ...

    Glad you are sorted. I found a couple of used ones in my bolts bucket yesterday but new would always be better.

    You have a second facelift, so your chassis code will likely be 04xxxxx. That means you don't have a vehicle spčed sensor. I think the tcu outputs the speed signal based on gearbox shaft speeds. Try askin elnevio as he has a similar aged car and has been playing with speed converters recently.

    What age is your car? The speed signal does split but I'm not sure where and as far as I know it is never grey.
