    2005 Aquatrax Turbo issue?

    Hey, I recently just put rings in this f12x and was able to get it to fire up (bought it not running). Took it out to the water today and I cannot get the ski to go over 10mph and its pulling 3300rpm. Turbo has a very loud whistle and spins free. also my actuator is moving when putting pressure through it with a compressor.
    Any ideas?
    Also tried to pull actuator line to get it to overboost and had no success.

    Thanks
    Greg

    Sounds to me you have a boost leak somewhere . Install boost gauge to get more info

    Cam timing might not be right, or if it sat for awhile the fuel pump sock is clogged up with ethonal crap

    Just cause your turbo spins free doesnt mean its good. Inspect it, if it was "good" you would overboost. Take the intake off and look at the wheel spinning in the turbo, rev it see if it flops around. If the compressor wheel is knicked/ damaged then its bad.

    His rpms and speed is off to be just a turbo issue

    First thing. Install a boost gauge, even if just temp. No need in guessing

    They usually run 4500rpms and run 35 mph so when turbo is not working.....from my experience

    Oh I agree 100% joey, but may as well get that done because the next post will be , only revving to 5000 Lol

    So pull fuel pump out of tank and clean sock? also if there is a boost leak would it be where the turbo meets the wastegate? I put gasket maker on it but should I try redoing it?

    Thanks

    Why not see exactly what the turbo is doing before going any further with a boost gauge? You already said you couldn't make it over boost(which us a DUMB idea) by pulling the gate line
