    P0246 Code after GTX2867r install

    Hey FST Community:

    Just went big turbo and after I installed my new tune from PMW I popped a P0246(Wastegate a high) code. I double checked all my connections on the BCS and the top valve cover solenoid and they are all correct as put out by Edgeautosport. Is this normal, or how can I fix it? Is it safe to drive like that?


    Thanks,

    Anthony

    Maybe check your wastegate actuator is pre-loaded properly

    Have called and emailed PMW with no response. Is there a certain setting the wastegate should be at?

    If it was used without issue by a PO and NEVER touched you should be fine.

    If it's brand new, it should come pre-loaded already but you can always double check the preload with an air compressor or high end bike pump w/ a PSI gauge.

    PO says he never changed it, but I'll see if I can double check it this week. I think my annoyance is with PMW more than anything. I've had issues with them before responding to my emails in a prompt manner. I'm going on 2 weeks for my first email with no response. If this continues I'll consult Stratified. Last time I had this issue I was waiting 5 weeks for Matt to respond, now they have Troy which I figured would help that issue but it obviously has not.

    Maybe you'll have a better response by calling?

    I tried that with no response. Mind you it was Friday so I will give them till Tuesday to call me back because maybe they closed early for Labor Day weekend. I just want to know is it safe to drive like this? I'm not letting it get into boost because I have no idea what it's going to do if it's saying the BCS isn't working correctly. I'm hoping it's just something they forgot to alter with the tune that has the BCS thinking it should be within (X psi to Y psi) and mine is above that range so it popped the code.

    Is the CEL popped up on the dash or is it like a pending code that just shows up when you hook up your ap? I think I may have this code but i only see it when I hook up the AP. Something to do with the way my install shop installed the turbo and capping one of the oem solenoids iirc. I would try driving it and see what happens, just ease into things.

    It shows on the dash. I'm gonna cap the other line and reset the code. If it comes back I'll have to baby it till PMW decides to call me/email me. Hopefully that's all it is
