    Check the waste gate area. Do you have any mods? Any check engine lights. How do you know it's not working? Do you have a boost gauge?

    I have a few mods, just the basics. Magnaflow full 3in exhaust. NO Cat, Blitz BOV, SPC intake, HKS Turbo Timer, and a red top Optima
    I bought the car a couple months back at a private dealer with the check engine light on, I was told that the check engine light was on because the O2 sensor is bad. I then restarted my ECU and about a week later the check engine light came back on.

    I do have an autometer boost gauge and its not reading any boost just vac.

    Another reason is because i do not here my turbo spool and I do not here my Blitz BOV release

    Much Help Is Apreciated!

    If the turbo just stopped working, sounds like the wastegate arm; from the actuator, has come off leaving the wastegate wide open. Easily checked by removing the turbo heatshield.

    If the exhaust is full catless and no ECU reflash, this is most likely the source of the CEL.
