    One of these valves doesn't look like the other !!

    Well, I have been chasing some low boost numbers out of a new charger I bought. How Lucky did I get today !!!! Someone is looking out for me . Thanks to Duke and Cal Hartline (high Psi) for making me take it apart today....(well Cal and Duke actually get the credit for the tear down, I was on cleaning duty) I can't believe we did our normal 80 mile ride on sunday at about 8,000 + rpms all day.

    Wow that is crazy,
    wonder how long it actually ran like that being cracked.
    Seems if tho you shut her off just in time. You got all you money worth out of that valve.
    Probablly will fall into pieces when you remove it.

    Couple more seconds of run time and it would of let go. You turned off the motor just in time even though you didnt know LOL.

    Its had a problem for almost two weeks, Crazy part is I beat the hell out of it Sunday over 80 miles. I could only get it to make 10lbs of boost on a ET68-140 @ 8250, but it still went 79.9

    Take pic when you remove it. I will be amazed if its still all in one piece. I want to see the other side of that valve,.
    Is that stock valve?

    Was that with aftermarket ecu?

    If so i guess them riva springs are too much. LOL JK

    That is quite impressive that you where able to hammer it the last 2 weeks and it held up.
    These 4 techs are stronger then most give it credit.
