New owner of 2013 police interceptor, questions...

Postby rednekotaku » Tue Feb 07, 2017 2:45 pm

Hello, recently i picked up a 2013 ecoboost police interceptor. The car is not building any boost and I am unsure why. So far I have checked codes and there are none active (not even an underboost code), I've opened up the charge piping near the top of the engine to check for oil leaks, checked the wastegates from the top and have not found anything. I was wondering if anyone might have a suggestion before I start taking everything apart to get to the turbos. Thanks.

How are you measuring boost?
My 2013 measures 11/12 max on Torque but seems to very seldom be on boost unless pushing hard into the higher rpms.

I bought it off Craigslist after eyeing it for 6 months and kept watching the seller drop the price until I finally bit. I don't know if there was any accidents the body has quite a few minor dings and some scratches that need to be buffed but overall I was impressed by how clean it was.

Well originally I was going off of the butt dyno and thought it was slow when I test drove it, but there was no lights or codes going off besides the airbag light (which only turned out to be the passenger seat being unplugged). Anyhow I went ahead and purchased it thinking it was something minor and bought a boost gauge and installed it to make sure that I was indeed getting boost. As it turned out the gauge doesn't move no matter how hard I press the throttle. The only other odd thing i found when i was tinkering with the car was a device plugged into the OBD port that said "fuelmaster" and it ran to a box that looked like a data logger. I removed that system and am not getting better results.
