    Really BAD Turbo Lag

    I have had the car for about 1 year and have always gotten full turbo boost at 2900 rpm or so. I took the car in for ALL new liquids and all of a sudden I don't get full turbo boost whether I am only on 10lbs or 18lbs till around 3600. What the heck can I do, what happened?

    Maybe you have an exhause leak that coincedently sprang up around the time you got the new fluids. Or maybe the knuckleheads working on your car caused it. At any rate, sounds like an exhaust leak somewhere before the turbo?

    so you have lower boost? did they loosen any clamps or damage any gaskets on your IC? are you running rich? does it smell 'funny' from your exhaust?
