123d e81 turbo actuator movement

Post by Tez123d » Fri Jan 25, 2019 7:07 pm

Good evening gents

Does anyone know how far the turbo actuator should move on the 1st turbo on a 123d e81 2007

I'm still suffering from low power before 3000rpm after having my turbos reconditioned with new actuators.

The company that has the car said the the actuator on the small turbo is only moving 2.5mm causing very low boost pressure.

Recently had a replacement new inlet manifold as there was a nut and bolt in mine plugging a hole.

Also would a poorly working actuator cause a management light at all?
