    MSX 150 Turbo Problem

    I have a MSX 150 with approx 19 hours on the engine. I am only getting 50% - 60% turbo boost (4 leds) and I max out at 6000 RPM. I replaced a hose (from compressor to wastegate solenoid Ė I think) that was rotting away. No real improvement in performance. Any suggestions on what I can check (I am not a mechanic)? I would take it into the shop, but I just spent $1900 on fixing my Virage Txi (44 hours) (fuel pump, flywheel, stator, and starter).

    Sounds like a loose hose clamp on the intake hose. Which one I'm not sure but loose clamp will not give full boost.
