Default Is this just a boost leak? Or more? - 09-07-2020, 10:29 AM

Went for a pull then heard a loud pop. It sounded more like air escaping than like misfire. Luckily i was logging at the time. The car was sluggish right after till i got home. I see the boost leak but do you guys see anything else in the log? Like a red flag. I only understand the basics to the log so asking for help. Thank you! & Happy Labor Day!

Have you physically popped your hood & checked to see what popped or cracked?

I'd start there, I am assuming it was your stock plastic chargepipe, but look, lot's of things can come loose.

We took a quick peek we saw nothing wrong from the top. I’m fbo with inlets. So we are thinking it might be the rear inlet. The clamp to turbo might be loose.

Thanks Dave. Just wanted to post what my problem was. I did end up changing the rear inlet from vrsf to TMS inlet the vrsf kept sliding off. I guess from the heat it just wasn't holding anymore to the rear turbo. Yet the no boost continued. Took me 3 weeks to figure out that there was a huge slit in the vrsf aluminum outlet coupler. Couldn't see it because it was underneath. So the boost must of ripped the coupler.

For future reference....there is no boost pressure on the inlet side.
