Hi guys need a bit of help, i have got a 1997 jdm sf5 turbo, it was running fine until the other night when the boost shot up to 20 psi and i damn near :censored: myself, it was running 11 psi but now it keeps spiking, it runs 11psi in 1st and 2nd gear but not the rest, i cant put my foot flat down now as it doesent seem to want to stop boosting until it hits cut out and i dont want to blow anything to bits, so i have been driving around like a granny:frown:, if its any help the boost control valve used to make a weird clicking sound and now that has stopped this has started, any suggestions guys???

Sounds like wastegate is stuck closed or your boost control solenoid is malfunctioning. Any mods?

Or you might have a cracked or leaking hose for the boost control solenoid.
