Hey Everyone - new owner and new to site. I just brought car home ~300 miles. When should I expect to have full power? Any comments on what to expect during break-in period would be appreciated.

You have full power now. You're boost will be predicated on altitude and temperture.

5 miles or 50 starts.

Drive it like you stole it!

I'll work on pictures. It's a black on white vert with no graphics. I guess I need to learn how to drive it - I can't seem to get any movement on boost guage no matter how hard I try.

Boost only comes on when you floor it.

Seriously. 1/2 throttle won't bring the boost.


Find a open area, get into 2nd around 25-30mph and floor it - then watch out!

Rinse, repeat and enjoy.

If you are slamming the Go Pedal all the way to the floor and there's still no boost, you may have a problem.

As was suggested previously, go out to a secluded area and let'er rip. If there's still no boost, you may want to drop by a dealership and have them take a look.

Doc--when you floor it, keep your eyes on the road and not the guage ! :roller:

Beat what happened at my dealer.

Their "senior tech" whoever that is, took it out, and now I forget, but I think it had 7 miles on it, basically drove it until the boost came on.. They just wanted to hot-rod in my baby under the guise of making sure the boost was active when I picked it up.
