Well, I don't know if it *definately* needs to be adjusted, just yet. Perhaps your APC is backing the boost off, and your turbo wastegate is just doing what it's told. Woudln't hurt to poke around the engine compartment to see if there's anything rattling - if there is, the knock sensor will "hear" that and think it's knock, which backs the maximum boost down, giving similar symptoms to what you describe. > http://18.104.22.168/turbo_folder/turbo_apc_docs.htm > for a primer on Turbo and APC, this site which tells how to put an APC on a > brick has a good write-up. > http://www.users.qwest.net/~qed/volvoapc/index.html Great sites, thanks for the links.
