No real drop in performance.... I did not throw a code, I had my AP attached to the car this morning (When I attach my AP I always check to see if I am throwing a code). I did not know there was an issue at that point... I finally had updated the AP firmware so I wanted to check it out I was boosting just fine this morning... There was a hiss but nothing more than the normal turbo sound. Waste gate... fine... Basically everything with in normal range!


LUCKY FIND!!!!!!!!!

Mine was COMPLETELY loose from the factory and was hanging on by some stroke of luck when I saw it. I screwed mine back in and checked the other bolts. I'm concerned that EVERYONE should check thiers.

I got a shiny new bolt in my intercooler... The think the mechanic's exact words were "WHAT THE F*CK" I told him that was exactly what I said when I found it!!!
They told me there is a first for everything... Since I had a little bit of a boost leak I had them take the intercooler off and inspect the gasket, (actually it is a rubber seal, in the shape of a twinkie.) That was fine... So they put it back together and I was on my way...
