Surprising our SUBSCRIBER with his DREAM CAR BUILD! (Full Transformation): 2014 Subaru BRZ

  Alex was recently announced as the winner for throtl Dream Build #2!

How to Diagnose a Boost Leak (1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX)

Having a boost leak will result in having a loss in boost pressure and horsepower. 

When we were driving our new Mitsubishi Eclipse, we noticed that it felt a little sluggish and wasn't making as much power as it should. In today's episode of throtl, we walk you through the process of finding a boost leak as we diagnose the leak in our car. Check out the video below to see how we diagnosed the boost leak in our car and were able to restore some horsepower.
