Any members in Nova Scotia

13 posts in this topic

Hi all,

 

Most of you know me, I've even met a few of you, so not new to the group, but I am new to Nova Scotia.  I moved to Pictou County a couple months ago. 

 

So, do we have any members on the board here from NS?

Hi Marc!

Drove through Pictou county last Thursday.

Stayed with a smart owner in Shediac NB.

Yup, could have stopped for a chat!

It'll probably be a long time before we get that way again.

It's lovely country and the people seem to be so much more relaxed on the east coast

Definitely a lot different from Southern Ontario. Not nearly as many angry or rude people.

The wastegate actuator will not move when just revving the engine.  You will have to drive it to make enough boost to open it.  But it may be stuck open so spray some penetrating lube on the pivot and use a pair of channel locks to rock the pivot back and forth until it springs back closed every time.  If that doesn't fix your problem you probably have a boost leak in a hose or the intercooler.  Do you have a scangauge to get your boost or map readings?  Boost should peak around 16 psi or map near 210-220 kpa.

You could say that, but it's 15 minutes from Bedford on the Hammonds Plains Road just before St. Margaret's Bay.
