    Can someone give this engine picture the once over...

    Hi guys, just taken the car out for a test and it is flat as a pancake... im thinking collapsing hose under boost but before i take of this TIP and put it back to standard.. can anyone see anything plugged in wrong / wrong way around that could be my issue?

    symptoms are 1st gear picks up great for ..... 4 seconds then everything goes flat.. no power

    ive changed the spring in the 008 to a yellow.. no diff... back to std DV.. no difference

    air filter taken off so tip has no kink... no difference

    help me please

    N75 plumbed in wrong.... the one going into the TIP is where boost should go... the longest outlet on the N75 goes into the TIP
