    Welp... that didn't last long. Enjoyed the car for 5 days and back to having problems. I drove it last night, did some small pulls, made some turbo noises, and all the sudden car starts running like ****! I can hear the exhaust isn't right, running rough, wanting to die at red light, then surging, then wanting to die, then surging. When letting foot off gas pedal the engine stays at 1200-1500 RPM's, instead of settling to 900. GOD DAMN IT. Can't catch a break with this ****ing thing.


    I'm thinking I have a huge vac leak somewhere. Most likely the brake booster, it's been suspect for a while now. That would explain the surging and RPM's not dropping.

    Suck man sorry its going rough.

    Are you going to buy new or keep pilfering parts from your other car?

    Look at the bright side. About 1000 more issues and you'll have a new old car!

    Hahaha. 999 more now. I'm always waiting for the other shoe to drop with this car. Whenever anything goes wrong I'm always thinking the worst. I don't wanna pilfer anymore from the maroon GTP. I want that thing back on the road.So far it has donated to the Turbo a handful of bulbs, Fuel Pump, Rack and Pinion, Battery, TPS, IAC, both Headlights, all 4 tires, and maybe a couple other things. Kinda a lot, those are some important and expensive pieces.



    ...24hrs later...


    Checked vacuum hoses, sensor connections, removed MAF, pulled front plugs. It ran better with MAF removed. Front plugs looked good. When hunched over doings spark plus, I notice this big ass hole in the throttle body. It's the vacuum tube going to the BOV when it had an M90 still. It was capped with a rubber nipple. The head of that nipple must of dry rotted and blew off during a turbo pull. LOL. Capped the hole with new pointy nipple.


    All is well now. She's back up and running good. MakeAme soo Happy. At the same time I'm thinking.... Man I hate this car. Blown of nipple.... F YOU!!
