I just noticed this morning that when I really get down on it and the supercharger starts cranking, the blow off valve opens up and i start to lose power. Is that just a BOV gone bad, or is there and adjustment somewhere I can make? I've got a basic Turbo XS blow off valve.

have you checked for boost leak? similar thing happened to me....as I started to build power, it would slowly decrease psi. the minute i fixed mine it was like zeus came out haha

have someone rev the motor and run your hands along the piping, specifically the silicone couplers...one of your clamps may just be loose

I'll look there again. I did have all of it disassembled at one time, so it might be an issue there I missed. Thanks..
