Yeah the pill is important but is not gonna damage the car to not be there while you go get one. Car will just run on wastegate pressure till its in there. It's a $2 part from the dealership. When you go in there just tell them you need a restrictor pill for the bcs. I can't remember the part number.(a Google search will find it for you) it goes in the little hose that comes off of the compressor side of the turbo.(between the compressor and the t fitting that's right there. I used a small punch to push mine into place. Just looks like a pellet with a hole drilled through it length-wise. I would suggest doing this instead of the mbc that's on there.
I bought the pill from the dealer, installed it, determined the previous owner left the original pill in, removed the second pill I'd installed. I'm going to see if the boost issue code has came back tomorrow at work. I'm really hoping it's not. I found out that the issue with the O2 sensor is with the heater circuit, so I'll likely just run with that sensor. After all, the money I would have spent on the O2 will go a good ways towards getting the gauges.
My plan at this point is to get a gauge set so I can know what the car is doing. Then I want to have the car tuned for the mods it has. If I were to go to a larger TMIC, would there be any gains? I've read mixed reviews. I do plan to stay with the stock charger as I don't have the funds for an upgrade + fuel system due to other hobbies.
