    I have a problem where my DV gets stuck open if I am in traffic for long periods. The heat from the engine must cause it to expand and get stuck, takes a few mins of driving for it to cool down and start operating as per normal.

    While it is stuck open, if you floor it, all boost will escape, the hissing is very loud and there is no power at all. If you don't back of the power pretty quickly it will cause the EML to come on.
    Obviously if you have a very small hole it won't be quite as severe as a DV being stuck open
