Subject: Re: Turbo Vaccum leak?

I had simlar problems when I had a bad turbo wastegate. When you step on it to get more than a basic boost it just blows it all out. It is also a pain to get going in the morning because it won't idle. Not sure what the price is on it, but it is right up under the dash.
