    Mechanics are dying breed unfortunately why I do my own work on motor usually lol. I will get it checked tho could be why my turbo psi isn't as high as other n14s I've had. Usually first thing in morning it'll pull 28 no problem but further into day it don't usually go over 23-25
     
    Final Drive Thanks this.
