i figured out whats wrong with my car, my gaskets are all gone......i heard another pop today and i popped the hood, when i turn the a/c on i hear a screech from the upipe............

and feel air blowing, so im thinking i have had this for a while though, is it bad on the car?

If i understand correctly its just an uppipe leak. If so its not really bad for the car but you're not making as much boost as you could.... I'd fix it...

Depends on where the leaks are - you imply more than one.

If you are losing metred air, that's bad for the car.

If you are losing exhaust gases after the turbo, that's bad for the planet and your performance, but not the motor.

(If the leaks are large enough to let air in as well as lose air, that's another story altogether. Again consider where the leak is, and what unfiltered air could do.)
