    leak through bov...stupid question

    Stupid question, but i bought a turbo inlet hose from ebay to replace my broken stock one. Fitment is terrible and barley hooks up to the bov hose. Now for the stupid question... Could this cause a turbo leak?

    A turbo inlet that doesn't properly seal could cause a pre-turbo leak

    7psi is wastegate pressure. Your car is in limp mode because of the leak. You're extremely lean because of the post MAF / pre-turbo leak.
