They didn't say why, I think they raced my car and blew it because they said it started smoking. I checked it today, it seems fine and there's nothing different about it. When I drove the car, I would randomly hit boost as I'd be almost flooring it just to get up a hill. The code is for the crankshaft position timing, no noises from the turbo or anything
