hey ya'll...for anyone keeping up on my problems, thanks!
we did a little testing today, because i told my dad (mechanic) how i was only getting 3 lbs of boost max. i know he doesnt really want to make my car go any faster, but he helped me out. we took off the supercharger cover and started fiddling around with everything. he was unhooking a vacuum hose, and other things. he asked me for something to plug the hose with, so i gave him a tic tac, LOL
we took it out on a test drive and it got 8lbs of boost no problem. i was so happy!! heres the pic, the arrows show the tic tacs, and the circled piece is what we think is bad. so yeah, if you are not getting the boost you think you need, try this
SOOOO...does anyone know what the circled part is called, how to get a new or used one, and how much its gonna cost. he said running the motor for long amounts of time with that plugged is not good. maybe this is the answer to all my problems
