I know, I have driven in Mosoons before and never had a problem, I shop cvac'ed the intercooler and removed any more water, cleared it from the Throttle body hose (Small pool of water) while I had a vacuum on the TMIC, I checked for leaks, it is tight, so the mystery continues, where di it come from, it has to be the TMIC, because the only traces of water were in line after it, so, I am cleaning everything and putting it together, hopefull I will make boost , if not, then something else.

I think the lack of boost was due to a vacuum loss and the bypass valve wouldnt open up to allow boost, only speculating, by the way, I checked the blow off and it was damp, but moving, so I dont think any damage happened there. There just must have been enough water to lose vacuum, but enough air space to allow the engine to run. Wierd.

Fingers crossed, we are good, I shall report again soon

Thank you
