    got slight performance problem on 1996 1.8turbo...it seems to have lost some power. my boost gauge only just sometimes manages to get to 6psi you dont really feel the tubo kick in really. i know the bov are very prone for losing boost over very short useage? do you think this cud cure my problem?
