Turbo wastegate solenoid was bad, replaced and all good now. I went out and stomped on it in Sport# (Si-drive) and was able to get teh RPM's up higher than 4,500 without getting a Christmas Tree dashboard and CEL. Car pulled great all the way through 6th gear. I blew by some 3 series BMW in the process and I know that guy was like, "what was that blur!?!!?". haha. On a side note, I found out that the solenoid is not covered by the powertrain warranty, however, as the dealership replaced the Turbo a few weeks prior they worked it out so indicating that the turbo malfunction caused the wastegate solenoid malfunciton. Yah, buddy!
