My above post was decently correct, but there was a boost leak, and I fixed both those hoping it would fix my boost controller problem, but it only made things more confusing.
When I run the stock setup, the boost holds nicely at 10 psi boost, DUH stock...
But when I hook the evc up, it boosts up to 20 psi, scary, but then I was like ok ok, it was after all in "learning mode".
BUT, after it completed that, it assumed my stock boost is 18psi. So I cant run it lower (and even when I manual set it to 10psi for a stock setting, it wouldnt even hold it at that, when it was on it would still shoot to 20psi).
So I have ruled out everything mechanically, either its a faulty stepping motor, head unit, or I set it up wrong, yet I followed the directions down to a T on the manual.
Am I the only one having a bad experience setting this up, or does this not sound right? From what I have heard most people plug theirs in, learning mode, bam ready to go, and learning mode wont go over the stock boost setting, mine, seems to keep the wastegate closed till about 18-20psi, but when I run just a tube from the compressor side to the actuator, it opens at 10psi ruling out a faulty wastegate.
