4) I'm 100% sure its coming from the top plug on the throttle body. Like a ticking sound. once the ignition is switched off there is no power supplied to any engine management components in the engine bay - unless you have a turbo timer.

5) thanks heaps for the reply hey. Once iv trouble shot these items, its going straight to the tuners. And I thought I had a IC leak only cause its the only silicone pipe I didn't replace. I might just replace that one too. Thanks again.

Did you use new intake manifold gaskets when you removed & re-painted it?

Also your car should be running around 18-20psi on that VF22 if it's been tuned properly.

1) so when I regaped the new ones befor putting them in was a no no? Should have I left them?

2) Cool, probley end up going with a moroso aos after a bit of time.

3) after powercoating the intake manifold it does look pretty sad next to it. lol

4) yes theres a turbo timer on the dash.

I used new gaskets on the intake, throttle body and bov. The 400km I did drive the car, it hit boost at 2800 and held 10 nicely, the car drove nice with boost leaks from the old pipes and oil was being sprayed around everywhere cause the filler gauge on the side of the catch can was broken at the bottom. After getting it home from the 400km trip home, I was surprised myself it drove so nicely. Isn't 18-20 a little high for a stock engine?

1. You should never re-gap platimun plugs (there's a risk of the platinum chip breaking loose at a later time)

2. If it's the type that mounts to the filler neck - save your money, they don't work.

3. Clean it then - use an alloy cleaner & a tooth brush

4. Does it work?


1.3-1.4bar is pretty normal for re-tunes on stock 2 litres. moderate boost increases (18 psi is only 3-4psi over stock) doesn't kill engines - too much timing & insufficient fueling kills them.

You might want to put up your location - I thought you were based in Western Australia (Hence Perth-WRX).
