Turbo coupe doesn’t engage turbo in 3 and 4

#1 Post by MGZRreplica » Sun Nov 24, 2019 9:40 pm

I’ve got my first turbo coupe.
When I’m in 1st and 2nd the turbo works
And occasionally in 3rd but in 4 no joy
It just revs.
Could it be the clutch or turbo.
Any ideas?

Leak in your recirc/dump valve.
If electronic boost controller might also be an issue.
