I need help please....
So this is on ongoing issue for a few years and since I don't ride too often I never got around to fixing it. My ski doesn't go over 46-48 mph on the dream o meter. Doesn't make any boost what so ever on my boost gauge but you do hear the turbo spool perfectly. It tops out 5050 rpms max. I just replacedthe valve/sensorin the back side of the ski on top of the intake manifold with 2 hoses/tubes to it thinking this is the wastegate solenoid and it needs replacing. That didn't do anything. Years ago Jim sent me a kit to install on the ski that I could never tune properly so I gave up (thanks for all the help Jim). I removed everything but my bov, boost gauge and intake. This little piece was in one if the tubes but I don't remember which one....
Can you tell me in which tube it goes?...and tell me what else to look for . Please help me get back into the hobby I once loved lol

It goes in the 3 inch long rubber hose comining out of the turbo right before the plastic Tee fitting. It controls the waste gate curcuit and must be installed for your stock ski to perform correctly.

Would you think that would make a huge no boost difference? How can I check if the wastegate is stuck open?

Without the brass "pill" restrictor, your engine will only build about 8 PSI of boost instead of the normal 12.8 PSI. That is your problem.

Ok. I'll put it back in...but I don't see any boost on the boost gauge
