Cars got no boost whatsoever. Feels like driving a 1.2 again. Also when the boost should come in it just whines instead.

Had people say all sorts. Turbo, actuator stuck etc. mates on his way now to have a gander but if anyone has any ideas it could save us plenty of time!

Thanks.

Checked pipes can feel pressure all the way around the system. Apparently the arm in the actuator should move but it doesn't. Only when pulling on it with mole grips?

Boost pipes won't be pressurised unless it's under load. Also I would be worried if u could move the actuator by hand. Mole grips mean it's working. I would say it has to be a boost hose off.

So after removing and checking pipes the turbo no longer whines. Still no boost. Mates run odb/obd thingy n it's misfiring on cylinder 1. Said it might be running in limp mode so gonna sort the misfire out first.

He seemed to think it was the coil pack. Black thingy that goes to the spark plug. I'll put the info across though. Thanks lads!

A missfire listed as a previous fault will not cause the issue you have. Sounds like a dead turbo or a boost pipe off completely.

I have a turbo for ktec as they do not modify the hot side for their hybrids. Rs tuning need a turbo with the hot side on.
If going for a hybrid would need decat, arp rod bolts and uprated injectors. Had to do this 2 weeks ago as my turbo went.

Not sure what's happening. I'm skint so it's definitely not getting fixed for a while. Might sell it as it is.. If that's even possible.
