Turbos not active suddenly?? just did vishnu blow off and intake yesterday

Hey guys,

I did my vishnu v5, afe intake and autowerkz blow off yesterday and today i was drinving and suddenly the turbos shut down? no more blow off and no turbo noise and way slower... Didnt hear any weird noise or anything, they are just off... even if i turn the car off and on. Any ideas? I see the blow off has 2 mini plugs for a small wire, only 1 is connected ?? id be surprised if it feel off tho..

Other than that yesterday the passenger restraint system failed.. i hear that may we just a wire..


ANwyays ill take it back to the shop monday, I just need reassurance that nothing reallly major happened to my engine

Cheers,
Dan

Happens to me on cold starts sometimes. I'll start driving and I hear this metallic sound (must be wastegates) then turbo spool has stopped and exhaust noise is deeper and louder. Then after a couple of minutes the turbos come back on and everything normal. Guess wastegates getting stuck.....
