great helpfull replys fellas, I came from vortex and nothing but hate from that site.
From the best i could tell there were no mods, though the bolts on the factory bpv looked they had be removed witch makes think the PO had an aftermarket one. but the PO did more audio upgrades and no perfomance.
I plan doing a home vac test this weekend when i can get home. Im stationed in VA and home (pa) is where all my tools and shop acceses is.
I read that the boost solienod acts up, something i was gonna look in to also. i just wanted to get a better direction before i start digging. Ive read that the end tanks do leak that was one of the areas i was gonna look for when i leak test it.
I know how to turn a wrench and knew a ggood bit about these cars but i need do some more homework. esp on this issue. Thanks for your help, any one else please chime in, ill be sure to update if/when i find my issue.
