Assuming by what you are saying, it sounds like you have a 92-95, but we are not sure. But what it sounds like is you are pulling massive amounts of KR, and the PCM is dumping the boost to knock the KR down. Please put your year and model in the signature area.

Try a couple things. Pull the vacuum line off the top of the BCA (black cylinder on the front of the SC). Does the boost gauge go up? If not, you need a new BCA.

Then pull the vacuum line off the bottom. Take it for a spin and see if you boost stays real low at WOT. If the boost goes up like it should to around 7-10 psi, a couple things are possible. You need a new boost control solenoid, or, you have weird amounts of massing knock and the PCM is commanding the solenoid to dump your boost. You'll need a scantool. See if Autozone has one you can borrow and have a passenger watch the KR (knock retard, you want 0) or if the Boost % goes down from 100.

ok i just went out and tryed that, with the top line pulled it gets 3 psi and creeps to almost 5 psi by 5k rpms, and when the car shifts the boost goes back to 3 and repets the process,
with the bottom one pulled im gettin a solid 7-8 psi but its breaking up bad, dont pull any harder than 4 psi cuz its braking up and sputtering a lil and popping

Something isn't right if both made the boost go up. Really bad spark plugs, bad fuel, something.

I think you could use a mechanic, or maybe a gearhead here can help.

Superchargers don't lose boost when they go bad. They make noise, and still make boost.

If you have low boost like that, either the BCS or BCA is bad, or the PCM is dumping boost for a good reason. Bad plugs, wires, improper fueling, or KR due to any number of issues including cracked exhaust manifolds are all possibilities.

You cannot swap an M90 on the car without massive amounts of custom fabrication, nor can you use a Gen3 M62 from a 94/95 without alot of work either.

IF you needed a new supercharger, you need one from 91-93 ONLY.
