Default I Seriously HATE EBC

Alright well I spent about an hour last night making a brand new msq by hand. And thought that would fix my problem so I reflashed the new hi res 10f, and my new handwritten msq. And what do you know it still doesnt work, now that I have the bcdc gauge I can see that It's reading what I have for the boost duty target table. (ex. I tried all 1's) and the gauge stayed on 1 but still hit oveboost protection which I have set for 8.5. Now when I change them all to 100 It reads 100 on the gauge in MT but same effect as the 1's. Okay so next I tried changing the vacuum line plumbing, and no matter what I set the duty cycle target table at all I get is wastegate pressure 6psi. So what gives? If the gauge In MT is reading what I have under the target table, that should rule out wiring errors right? otherwise it would be a dead gauge? somebody please help I dont wanna use a MBC just want this damn thing to work!

Set the first column in the duty table to 100 RPM. Then set it to 50% duty cycle in that entire column. When you turn the key on the valve should make noise. If the valve isn't working with key on then there is nothing going on. You should be able to test the circuit on the bench with a resistor and LED. Take pictures of your board, i want to see your mod. It's possible you have the wrong resistors, DIY sent me a 100k ohm resistor instead of a 100 ohm resistor back when I built my own board (long time ago).

The MT gauge reading only indicates that the ECU is attempting to send a signal to the solenoid, but not that the solenoid is receiving it. Double check your wiring to the solenoid.

it was working before i sent it out:



I belive your MS was the first i discovered that I had received 100k ohm resistors in the boost mod kit and not 100 ohm.
