    You need to make it public. That said, if you have a significant leak from cracked headers, then I'm not surprised.

    Why aren't you attempting to fix the header issue to see if that is causing the problem? You know you have a crack there.

    Did you fix the cracked headers? If not... Why are you baffled? You are dumping out your hot (metered) air that is supposed to go through your turbine. Bad things are going to happen one way or another. It's not rocket science - an ECU tune can't remedy a cracked pipe pre-turbine.

    WOW... This is simply the biggest problem on this god for saken forum. You people post up questions for people with 12 years of experience with turbo subarus to help you with... Then you completely ignore the help you get and perform 8 worthless hours of work to your own car and are baffled by the turbo being in perfect shape when the 4th or 5th post clearly tells you the issue at hand and that would literally take an hour to fix.. For the love of all things fix your stupid header or put your stock manifold on and start taking the advise you asked for, especially if 5 or more people suggested the same exact thing!!!!!!

    Because the i didnt really think that the crack was that significant to make such drastic changes. im goin to weld it today and see what happens, and if the weld helps im going to get a new one.

    And i wasnt ignoring the help. i just wanted to make sure i wasnt missing something simple. i wanted some more reasurance before i go spending another 500+ on a new header.

    And i dont have the stock manifold or i would have done that already. I am going to weld it here pretty soon and ill let you guys know the results.

    Sorry for the upset
