Rb20 with 45v4 turbo and surprise in intake

Postby konspec » Wed Nov 15, 2017 11:20 pm

So uncovering some things in my rig since importing it. Having a “boost cut” issue at 15 psi. Obviously this has been discussed much but, after ckecking for leaks, then dissembling all intake tubing, I found out the car has a 45v4 turbo (vg30) this was a pleasant surprise. Weird thing was this steel web situation in the intake tube right before the impeller. Has anyone seen this? I’m thinking this is some jdm quick fix for added boost. Can’t find any mention of this in the repair manual. Hopefully removing this will lower the boost and fix any fuel delivery issues
