Question about 1989 Ford Merkur XR4Ti
Hello I have an 89 Xr4ti. I cant seem to get any boost from the turbo. It spools up nicely and the waste gate seems fine in there a switch or valve that kicks in the boost?

SOURCE: sunbird turbo kick out
When the fuel system can"t provide any more fuel it will cut off (similar to electronic speed cut) to save itself from leaning out. Its not a good idea to take that hose off as it will boost itself to death, it has no way of controling how much boost is run and it'll be a matter of what goes first, the engine or the turbo.

go to alldata.diy.com pay $20.00 to get detailed info on the trubo, most likey the hose is wore out the rubber hose and will have to be replaced the waste gate keeps from over boosting the engine so if the hose is worn the clamps won't hold it any more. remove the hoses on the turbo wiggle the turbo shaft back and forth and end to end there should be no play in the shaft if there is you need a turbo kit and can buy one to rebuild it, look up bell turbos in oregon on the net and get his number he can tell you the cost of the kit and how to rebuild. If you have excessive oil on the rubber hose then you have a blown oil seal and it will need to be replaced. you are lucky at this pont and the kit will come with what you need to fix the waste gate as well, but dought the gate is the problem.

Yes it will hurt the performance if yo do anything wire the waste gate shut. however the waste gate is on the inside of the turbo unless you have a special turbo that is not stock.

SOURCE: no spool and wastegate wont open
I dont think anyone can hear the wastegate open. It opens when there is overboost and just routes exhaust around the turbo You may have heard the over boost valve open and release pressure., but normally, it doesnt open unless there is a problem with the waste gate. Its like a back up in case the waste gate is bad, or disconnected. Does the engine have the same amount of power as it always has? If so everything should be OK.
