"Chipped", but its the basics that are flawed........
New distributor and cap/rotor 1 year ago ~15,000 miles.
Samco hoses (upper and lower) two weeks old.
IC end caps leak free (visual) - Complete disassembly and other hard pipe 
clamp replacement when timing belt was done two weeks ago.

BPV & factory $$$ O2 sensor last Aug....old BPV removed still seals okay too.

The engine in 4th from 2000RPM on up, pulls 1.5 bar tops.  Doing WOT test.

We replaced quite a few broken and audiably leaking vacuum lines around the 
engine.  BPV to back of motor in copper line.

The MFTS was replaced last week, but the gauge is still low.............. 
Corrosion on the connector I'll address tomorrow.

I suspect surging because of the ISV (idle does "lope" from 400 to 1000 RPM)

Would WGFV limit boost too?  I suspect the gauge would read erractically 
high/low/high/low etc............

Wastegate diaphram?

All points considered.  I'll gather the Bentleys too................
