have a 1987 TII with a APEXI bov. Today I autocrossed for the first time, the day started out crappy car kept stalling, after 2 hours I realized I was blind and the turbo inlet pipe poped off.....well everything seemed ok all day autocossing until my last run and I notices My BOV wasnt venting at all!!!! I can hear the turbo spool and it boosts about 5psi like normal but i shift and nothing! I hooked up the stock BOV and it does the same thing. Also I think I see some oil or something on the tubo pipe and rubber coupler befor the bov pipe.

Im in Orlando FL 3 hours from home and supposed to drive home tom night please say its something easy..... :-(

The stock BOV does not let off pressure? Are you sure you have a good vacume source on there?

If your vacuum soure is coming from one of the nipple from the back of the UIM, not all of those nipples are god sources, sometime syou gotta switch things around to find the best vascuum souce
