I finally found a 2nd hand differential pressure sensor that will not cause my children to starve :) so you might say that things are starting to look up..

Just doing 1 thing at a time. Oil leak was due to loosely tightened oil filter... Oil change 101 fail... Bur now the new filter is in, the oil doesn't leak anymore, so I got that going for me, which is nice.

Next up, the BBOD shuffle dance. I intend to follow Josh18 advice and screw around with the actuators and tubes...

Thanks everyone for their input. I haven't been able to make any progress since my last post. New DPS costs 400+ dollars to replace the one I currently have, and there is no guarantee it will solve my problem. Also I deviated from my original idle rpm fluctuation quite a bit.

I wasn't able to source any information anywhere in regards to electric values of the parts which make up the TT control system, so that I might check the resistance/voltage on individual parts and rule out any faults;

I've been disconnecting and reconnecting the boost lines (which btw Josh18 i kept the original diameter 3mm) spraying carby cleaner into the actuators in hope something would change... nothing changes, car still won't boost when I tell it to.

And now other parts are starting to fail; brake rotors are warped, handbrake shoes are gone, there is that tiny oil leak developing on the oil filter and the paint is all but dissapearing. All of that worth fixing if only that engine can turbo properly...

I am posting here hoping someone can share some of their wisdom, how to pin point the fault because I am struggling with it...

Thanks Josh for your input, i found it inspiring. And Chappp, forsheding.some light on BBOD.... :)

Now, back to questions. Your/Our pressure difference sensor, which is mounted on drivers side, just behind the strut mount (and I think I already know the answer to this question) - how is it cabled?

I found mine having some dodgy copper running out the side, and then through the hole in a firewall near the clutch opening through to the cabin... apart from the standard factory plug - attaching pic...

Could this be the source of my lack of boost up hills? How can I test this bugger to see if it's doing what it's supposed to please...?

I also reset the ECU at the same time and upped the fuel pressure a bit.

How'd you upped the fuel pressure?
