    I had a tech at work replace my turbo inlet and he tore it apart and told me he didnt know how to put it back together. He crushed the nipple on the right side of the turbo so i had to get a new turbo. So i towed it to subaru then they put it together. Now every so often it wont start right. Will post codes later

    MAF issue probably caused by your intake
    EGT issue possibly caused by who knows what at this point

    any tune or just the mods?

    how long since the Subaru work? How long after the work did the problem start?

    Sounds like a leak in the intake tract somewhere.

    My starting issue happened the day it got put back together i hit fuel cut due to overboost due to bad turbo. I was runnin a typhoon short ram prior to the subaru work it hasnt done it in awhile so im leaning towards bad maf or electrical issue and no tune yet
