    First question, why do you want to clean it?
    I can understand wanting to know where it is, so that if the MAP sensor fault is returned it is easy to locate and diagnose

    See number 8

    The turbo sensor is mounted just above the turbo. But I though the map sensor was in charge of boost?

    Just curious to see if it's dirty, sticky or whatever. Same reason as I'd like to do the MAP sensor and EGR when I'm bored .

    So the boost sensor is the same as the turbo actuator or turbo sensor?

    Basic location on that pic is near the yellow bit at the back right , underneath the black pipe that has heat shield on it where it goes over the top of the turbo

    The big give away when you find it will be the words boost sensor written on it lol

    Fair enough.
    The MAP sensor is in control of how much boost I thought?

    There is a sensor on the turbo actuator But I as under the impression it was there just to control the action of the waste gate

    Celes uploaded this some time ago, shows the position on the Y30DT :

    Put the two together and you should be able to find it

    That is labeled on the pics I uploaded in the info thread.second pic listed as MAP sensor

    Just not a very clear pic.

    Once I'm on the comp I'll upload that into the thread. Unless one of you 2 can do it?
