Advice please!!!
ok so my car is now idling weird (jumping between 1200-1800rpm) and runs like crap below 3500rpms(stumbles when you give gas, pops,and jerks) now for the interesting part, i was adjusting the timing trying to fix this and change the plugs. took it for a test drive and still the same, i got on it @ 2nd gear and totally blew the t-clamp @ the turbo outlet, but after i did it all i heard was the noise and it ran better w/no turbo!!!! i runs very smooth without the turbo the only issue is that idles at 200 rpms any ways i dont know what else to do..maf is regrounded, timing set @ 17* new plugs, cleaned the iaac and iav...etc. the only thing i haven't done is pressure test for boost leaks but it doesnt make sense because it runs better w/out turbo!! thanks!

Sounds like you have a massive boost leak somewhere.

Definitely sounds like boost leak.

turned out to be a combo of boost leak and bad ecu...but its all good now

Glad you got it fixed! Sucks you had an ECU issue, but at least your car's running now.
