    Weird Turbo Noise / Overboosting or not spooling

    Hey guys,

    I get home from school start the car and take it out for a spin. Turbo starts making some new noises and boost is all over the place. I overboosted to about 1.6bar and sometimes it doesnt even spool. Im thinking the turbo is going to blow soon or the wastegate is screwed up. Let me know what you think, hopefully i can get to a shop sometime this week.

    Not alot of info. Run a scanner on it and check for codes or pending codes. My guess is you are severly over boosting,knocking and IAM is possibly dropping and lowering boost to wategate. Unless you have a way of posting a log or describing the problem with more detail getting it to a shop is your best bet.
