Question about Toyota Supra
My 87 Supra Turbo has a stock Boost Gauge that doesn't seem to read until it's under heavy boost. I'm new to turbos so I'm not sure where to start. Any ideas?
The gauge is working fine, the turbo will not kick in untill the engine is spinning fast enough, as the turbo is propelled by exaughst from the engine. So, you can drive around normal and never use the turbo, and climb in the gas and spool the turbo up, what you are noticing is called turbo lag, which is the biggest down fall when compaired to superchargers!
