IA3+ issues

given, i'm a bench racer and can't fix shit, but i doubt your turbo was the issue. as long that the thing spins, it will build boost - whether it likes it or not. right?

i think there's something else at play here.

It makes me jealous that I no longer have these issues. I was told
that my turbo was on it's last legs, but it might have been a boost
leak. At the end, I was pretty much running an N/A engine.

One day... maybe I'll pick up another lovable headache.

now who the heck can help me with a CEL from an 02 A4 1.8? (usually
much simpler.... and much less fun)

fast!). other times you jump on the gas and it doesn't give you that kick in
the ass. still fast but no "pay-off" when you hit 4,000 rpm which is
typical of the IA3+.

torn breather hose (just got an 034 silicone one to replace it - would that make
any difference?). ALSO, we noticed that one of the 02 sensor's was not
plugged in (the passenger side one). the connector was just dangling. who knows
- maybe the car was running super lean before and that's why it felt faster?

swap yet.
