Surprisingly no, just on the intake valves and ports.

I was thinking maybe it's from running rich from burbles?

Anyone know if it's possible for a single turbo to underboost (below wastegate spring) due to JB4 settings? If so, which settings would cause something like that?

Pressure tested the turbo compressor housing side and did not find any leaks besides a tiny amount from around one of the bolts but that shouldn't be an issue. So no problems with that or the intake...

I checked the MAC with the ignition on and it was clicking fine. Also, the car doesn't reach target boost on map 0 which has the MAC disabled (I believe?).

Going to try to rule out the MAC issue...

Ended up getting it out. Had to pry it harder.

Never seen a slave cylinder with the piston clipped into position. Guess it helps with the pressure when it's installed and you pull it out.

Did they mention if the oil pan gasket or valve cover gasket was done? Does it have index 12 injectors?

Personally, I think they're asking for too much at that mileage. I'd wait for a better deal.

Yeah, I purchased a puller with the slide hammer and could not get it to move whatsoever. Probably hit it over a hundred times and made no progress until I cut it.

Cut into transmission shaft trying to remove pilot bearing

Yeah.... so... I messed up.

It's about 0.5mm deep. I don't think it should affect performance, but now I'm paranoid.

Am I screwed?
