    Split Pipe

    Just a quick one really. How would the car differ if the pipe from the front bcs to actuator had a split in it?

    Had a feeling it would do that as the actuator would not be fully controlled.

    MMMM that could be one of the reasons it was down on power at the rolling road then.

    Would not be boosting properly and could also overspin the turbo and blow it as it can't control the wastgate properly.

    I had this, the turbo would boost like mad for a second or two and then start screeching and then the ECU would cut the power.
