    9-3 Aero Convertible Auto...

    Just bought this lovely 2001 beauty to accompany my 9-5 Aero beast on the drive, however, although it drives fast and well, I noticed that the turbo boost gauge needle just touches the orange zone but does not move into it! Tried aggressive kickdown starts and high speed runs.....no strange or any noise from unit whilst driving or engine idle.....wastegate stuck? Actuator? Boost valve? ......any ideas what the problem could be and where to start looking?
    Overall mileage over last few years has been very low.....

    could be all the things you've mentioned bet for the boost valve first try the screw trick.

    you can put a screw for closing one tube of the BPV and trying if you have boost if yes your bpv is fired. or you can test the BpV with an ohm meter must have 7 oms.
