I think you overboosted. It can happen when you're in a high gear and under WOT for a while. Retuning the wastgate duty cycles might help to correct that, or the solonoid itself could be bad and you need to replace it (unlikely).

yea i think it was an over boost too the car nose dived and it pulled the timing and then the check engine light came on....retune the wastegate duty cyctes?? how and can i do it?? or should i just wait for the protune in about 2 weeks and he can tune that out ?

Yeah just try and take it easy and stay out of WOT until your protune.

Don't bend it too much. The corner passenger side is only connected in the bottom corner.

im getting my downpipe installed on Monday and i plan on just throwing away the stock heat shield, almost everybody i know doent run one....is that a good idea?

by the way what happens when you overboost? i know it throw a cod and retard timing a bit to avoid any knock but then does your car ever return back to how it was before you overboosted or do you have to re-set the ecu or re-tune?

reset the ecu or clear the code same diffrence.. and why not run a heat shield think off all of the extra heat being thrown at your intercooler thats like 5 inches away??..

It only really pays a heatsoak toll when the car is hardly moving to stopped. Even then it's ok to have, you just have to realize it may be a bit sluggish on acceleration from a stop. Once you're moving though, doesn't make a difference.
