Turbo Wastegate Adjustment Check

Post by JerseyVince »

Good Afternoon. I have a 2006 V50 T5 AWD. Engine # B5254T3. Since owning the car, I've haven't liked the power availability of the engine. It seems to need a good amount of pedal travel to get the car to move. When accelerating on a highway, the boost doesn't kick in until 3000 RPM. It seems late to me. Does anyone know how to check to see if the wastegate is adjusted properly?
