The waste gate is probably controlled by a vaccuum line. i have seen some home grown devices that would adjust the ammount of vaccuum signal the wastegate actuator recieves, there are also some turbo boost controllers that are available in the aftermarket that let you adjust the boost pressure from the driver seat and some even include a "turbo timer" that keeps the car running a predetermined ammount of time after you turn off the ignition so you dont melt down a turbo by just parking the car hot. of course the backyard stuff is cheap and somewhat effective, the turbo boost control unit is a much safer and more precise way of doing it. sounds like you already have some cash invested in this, it would be a shame to lose it over the cost of a boost control unit and melt your engine down by overboosting it and blowing out the head gaskets or the manifold blowing off. this is one i found rather quickly on the internet

How do I fit a dump valve to an rb320

The best answer is DON'T. Contrary to popular belief the Impreza will run far better with the standard recirc valve unless its a good quality VTA replacement you're fitting AND you have it mapped in. If not, spend your money on better mods my friend.

Hi brett here ive just bought a 96 2l turbo impreza i changed the dump valve and it started to idle iracticly so i changed it back to the one that was on when i got the car and now it wont run rite it just...

Is changing the waste gate all you did? Did you change anything in the air intake system? You must be very careful altering the boost pressure on turbo cars. You can cause the engine to detonate and blow a piston. I'm not sure what the rcommended boost pressure for your model is, but it is usually between 1.5 and 2.5 bar.

I was just wundering could i fit a 2ltr turbo exhaust

you may be able to from the converter back, maybe???? if the turbo pipe is the same diameter and the flange size. Of course, a muffler shop could make any modifications to make it fit. one thing you want to keep is that it all bolts together where it does now, So you can unbolt it for service.........Dont let them weld everything together.

Wheres the fuel pump on a 1992 impreza import?

It is in tank. Take out back seat squabs and rear luggage carpet. There should be a removeable panel usually black on the floor. the pump and sender are under this. Change pump for a Walbro 255 LpH but leave the original filter sock. It is better than the Walbro one.

Subaru impreza 2l turbo, 1994, starts fine and

your spelling is horrid.   I think your boost control valve or pop-it valve is defective.  Also try a basic tune up with plugs and filters.
