Bill, TT started acting up again, got alittle spirited once 2nd grear broke the tires loose and then it started running like crap afterwards. fuel mix on wide bands at 10 and blinking, no power all most like clutch slipping, when mix is that low all notice boost gauge at about -9ish instead of -18. then at idle will rev to 2000 then drop to 500 then back and forth fairly rapidly. found 3 vac hoses off 1 to each of the throttle botties and one to balance tube. replaced all and still same prob.
Any ideas to check before I have to bring it over.

OHHHH NO CODES (except 55)

check to see if an intercooler line blew loose. They usually do not come loose on those due to how tight they all fit. It possible one split and once it starts boosting goes very rich due to leakage. Make sure air mass is connected good at inlet and plug. Let me know what you find. I will check back here for the next few days to whats up. as always call the shop or email straight to [email protected]
I check it several times a day

Think I found it, J pipe (?) pass side goes down toward turbo, came out of the rubber joint sleeve, will test more later, still haveing the lean condition on cold start for a while, gonna put in a new engine temp sensor to see if it helps, noticed today on start up the aux fan came on for a few mins.
