I bet he just loosene the starwheel so it would smoke on the low end. tighten it up a bit silde your housing all the way back and see how it feels. If you don't like it you can always put it right back where you had it.

Look at the 2 stickies on top of the section; one is called tuning the afc or something like that. There is a picture and it shows exactly which portion to grind

it does haze a bit putting around, and it smokes like a banshee until the turbo boosts when I floor it or if I lug it. So tighten the starwheel up towards the firewall?

Oh also I just remembered somethign; the guy that did my afc said he has it set to take off like a bat out of hell at 1700rpms. He asked what rpm I want it to really kick in at, and he said 1700 is a good rpm because that puts me abotu where the turbo starts boosting. Soooo whatever that means he did, you guys might know what he means.

Nope its a SLUG until about 1700rpms, then at 1700rpms it takes like a bat outta hell man.

But something interesting I JUST noticed. My bottom 2 afc screws are awol How the hell did those come out?? I notice smoke and oil and stuff blowing out, and when the motor is reved the whole afc moves . Sooo could that be the culprit for poor mileage too or no?

Ok long story. To answer your question, what I ORIGINALLY meant was when I was reving it under the hood it was smoking from the region of the afc.

But NOW my ******* turbo is fried AGAIN! I just replaced it a few days ago! Coming home from work I noticed it wasn't boosting anymore, gutless and rolling black smoke. Figured the afc was playing games.

I fixed the afc, now I test drove and same results. I'm soooo pissed I could torch this stupid piece of ****. Last time I test drove it I floored in first. No boost only sputtering about 2100+. Slammed the brakes and think I saw white smoke rolling past me. Turbo still spools (I can hear it) just doesn't boost.

I'm so fed up with this ******* thing. I bought it was a project (read: MODS, front cover fix, paint etc).. and this thing is only projecting my ******* bank account into the black

No I dont think its a boost leak. It came on the same way my last one blew a few days ago. Was cruising, all of a sudden right before I shifted (around 2k) it started sputtering, throwing smoke and being gutless. Only this time I dont hear the impeller clanging around. But i"m pretty sure its busted. There isn't anything thats been done that would cause a boost leak.
