This just made my day/week/month so far. I've known something wasnt right with my car sounding like it had a supercharger

Looking back, it was good practice going back through all of the induction and piping. As you can see in the video below, the CP was WAY too loose. I was able to ever bolt the middle section down due to how kinked the piping was from the intercooler. Car feels butter smooth now, appears to build boost much more smoothly, throttle response and power all seemed to be increased. Not sure exactly where the leak was but i'm pretty sure I was loosing power and overworking the turbo to meet target with a leak. Any other ideas? on what this was impacting?

Look at how loose the ChargePipe was!!



First start after redoing induction system and piping. Much better
