Well I still dont have the standalone management on my car yet VEMS. Thats a long story though. Im basically waiting on a second unit to get here because the first one was messed up.

Anyway, lately the car has been acting up a bit. It started on a long trip one day when it wouldn't boost above 1.4 bar. It felt kinda like a fuel cut whenever it would get up to that boost level. Just almost like some kind of a soft cut. I thought it was probably limp mode from overboosting or something. One day it just randomly went away and ran fine. 

Today I went to go for a drive and the thing was missing at idle pretty bad at times, and it wouldn't even get into any boost at all without that soft cut thing. Then later on I drove it again and it wasn't really missing at idle at all, but it was cutting out at right about 1.4 bar again. 

The only thing that I know of thats wrong with the car that could be related at the moment is that it needs a new valve cover and its leaking a little oil onto the spark plugs. I have the gasket, just haven't had the time to put it on. Other than that, I'm stuck as to what it could be for now. 

Thanks ahead of time for any info you can provide...
