Arm extended is boost. Arm retracted is no boost.

I am very very confused, but from what you guys say, by BCA has been acting exactly opposite the way it should. Oh my.

I do need a boost gauge

I'll have to go out tomorrow and check about removing the vacuum line.

I've converted these into .AVI files. Should work this time.
