I know you have no meth kit, but do you have anything AFTERMARKET on the car? an elaborate alarm system might offer valet mode where there is no boost.
No alarm. Car is lowered and has aftermarket wheels. When I was taking out the air box out it looks like it has been removed before. I would think the previous owner had mods on it. Since it has euro taillights and lowered. Is it possible to start the car and move the wastegate to seeif it changes anything?
