@superd6199 any update from your friend?

The shop has my car and the Alpha 8 kit was installed with a CSF manifold and PI kit. Tried to tune ran into a wastegate/boost issue. Hopefully your friend had a better outcome.
That sucks to hear. @MarinTuned what's the best way to avoid this? Does the place you tune at sell and install AMS for our cars?

What exactly is the issue. "Wastegate/boost issue" can be a slew of things. What exactly was going on?

I'm interested in procuring a single part from this kit: The exhaust manifold. I could not find it, however, as a separate component on the AMS website. Am I the only one? Is this available as a separate item for purchase?

highly doubt they would advertise or offer the manifold separately publicly. best bet would of course be calling them or emailing them. alternatively, there are several manifold options already sold separately from kits.

I doubt they will sell separate from a kit. Beside, their manifolds are typically very specific to the rest of their kit so you probably don't want just a manifold. I suggest going with Full-Race.

What I was told was the car idles fine but at WOT boost was reading over 45lbs. Car is tuned by Botti. They reached out to AMS so hopefully it gets squared away soon.

log?

unless the wastegate and/or actuator was set incorrectly, there should be no boost control issues imo, unless.....

1. wastegate and/or actuator set wrong from the start
2. tune issue
3. their kit has major boost creep issues and cant bleed off exhaust fast enough.

Still waiting for parts to arrive but will keep you posted. I hope you get the wastegate issue resolved and very curious to see some numbers from the both of y’all.

I guess it’s not just my Alpha 8 build. Apparently similar issues are known and common for the limited few in the wild.

I should have just gone P2uned ?

This is good to know. Maybe I should stop playing the waiting game and go p2uned?

P2une 6port manifold looks so good. Put that order in.

Kicking myself because Norris told me the stock wastegate was a pain to tune.

But isn't stock wastegate more reliable?

P2uned and Full-Race manifolds are nice but offer less control than OEM wastegate i.e. boost-by-gear and low boost pressure will be gone.. plus those manifolds require dual wastegates and BOV so there's a much higher upfront cost.

I suggest a different tuner. I've heard they are a pain but experienced tuners have a lot of the bugs worked out.
