I injected a little later, gave gas and at idle the boost pressure jumped to 0.6 atmospheres.
With earlier injection under load, it barely rose to 0.5 atmospheres.
But haven't checked it yet.

A few days ago I noticed a water leak from the radiator.
Today I removed the radiator, got to the tube with a hole, crumpled the tube with pliers, found a hole on a flat surface through which water flowed.
I washed the leak area with water and detergent, dried it and sealed everything with sealant.
I've been able to fix leaks this way before.
If that doesn't work, I've already figured out another way to fix it.
It will be necessary to make a through hole in the crumpled tube and close it with a screw and nut through rubber gaskets.
It will be difficult.
But the war is on, spare parts have become expensive, and money is getting smaller.

Took the exhaust manifold off the highcube
... only 2 sheared bolts.

Stopped in the end because I needed to helicoil and I didn't have any

I played a little bit with the new camper to see what works and doesn't...

And just pit my other camper up for sale...

Repair of the radiator with sealant was successful.
Yesterday I adjusted the valve clearances.
It was possible not to touch, wear is minimal.
I found the cause of low boost pressure and crackling during acceleration - I forgot to tighten the clamp on the rubber pipe connecting the turbine to the manifold! :lol:
Today I was driving from the dacha, at the exit from Vyshgorod there is a small hill, which I like to climb with acceleration.
At 5 speeds, the boost pressure reached 1 atmosphere - as usual.

Investigated horrible rasping noise coming from the turbo area. Four exhaust manifold bolts were loose, one had nearly wound right out. Horrible noise was exhaust gasses rasping past the manifold gasket. Gasket only there because I fitted one a couple of years back.
