Just got my GTS, yeay!!!! What an awesome awesome car! :D anyway, after having a root around under the bonnet I noticed what looks like a bleed valve, but I aint too sure. Can anyone on the board lend an opinion? The boost gauge in the rev counter doesnt go anywhere near the +7 bit, so I am assuming the boost level is still safe?? :confused:





Cheers, Skip

No idea personally!

Mine doesn't have one though.

My boost gauge doesn't go up to the +7 either, it stops at about +5.5, but both my Boost controllers display and my HKS boost gauge indicate correctly. Stock gauge is, for wont of a better word, crap.

It does wake up once I reach .9 bar, when the needle leaps to the top of the scale suddenly. Very strange, but ultimately, crap.

that is what is known as a bleed value, to increase or decrease your boost.

Wind it in to decrease boost, wind it out to increase your boost.

Warning, playing around with your boost settings could cause problems and potentially detonation, and cause damage to your engine.

Bleed valves are a crude way of adjusting boost levels, if you are intend running running to higher than std levels I would advise the use of an electronic boost controller for more stabe boost conditions with less chance of spikes.
