    You obviously didn't put something back the way it was before. Go back over everything you took apart (boost leak? Exhaust leak?)

    Also, run some logs and post.

    That's the thing. As far as I can see. I did put everything back. Actually better than it was. There WERE 2 nuts missing off my downpipe.. Now there's not lol. I wish I could do a data log. My computer doesn't work right now

    AP logging? Or do you need to link to a computer to get the logs off it? Never logged with one myself unfortunately.

    Check the torque on your headers and uppipe. What you've described sounds just like a pre-turbo exhaust leak. If you were logging, I'd bet your front O2 sensor would be going nuts as well.
