BOV is cheaper and simpler, but I prefer the sound and re-circulation of the DVs. BOV sound would be out of place on a 5'er IMO. Also with the BOV you might spray oil out of it due to the PCV systems...

Based on my experience, those logs look more like a boost leak or maybe a vacuum/solenoid problem. Would run through that line of troubleshooting first. It can be hard to tell those issues from turbo...

I recall a similar problem from a user here and it was a cracked valve cover or bad VCG, rather than just the PCV. Sorry I couldn't locate the thread. Did you replace the whole VC or just the PCV?

What percentage meth? 100?

AWE is right up the road from me. They make great stuff for sure. It's a shame how expensive they got since I brought my VW there many years ago.

There are two main types of failure for N54 - wastegate failure, and turbo failure.

When the wastegate wears out, there is too much play to fully seal and boost builds up slowly if at all. Rattle...

On N55 the throttle is used to control boost, as you said.

The throttle is usually nearly fully open during spool, then as it approaches target it will pull back sharply and then re-align to...

Was the code triggered near the end of this log? Both LP and HPFP look a bit ragged at times. It dropped bigtime during the last part of the log when you stepped on it in 2nd.

I've heard of the cruise not working if you have a generic BEF instead of one based on your stock BIN. I had to copy the tables in for my car. But that particular issue seemed to mainly affect 135's...

Pretty much impossible to get 'real' flames without 2step/antilag and a straight exhaust.

Sorry about that, usually having the newer FW is helpful as it logs more and has additional settings. Its possible you still have a separate issue or a settings issue.

Did you buy the board new and when? Or was it used? Only early boards were non-ISO so maybe we can rule it out before you disassemble everything.

Agree with above about checking menu 4. Your boost is following DME curve. But also, is it possible your JB4 is old enough to be non-ISO?

You seemed to be a bit lean during spool up. I noticed...

You could check for leaks and check solenoids/vac, but looks to me like a typical high-mileage turbo log. The initial onset of spool up looks a little delayed though, but then it goes up pretty...
