Yes. Took a good look. I changed the oil when I changed the fuel filter and had the car up in the air with the skid plate off. When I installed the upgraded SMIC I swapped all the lower boost pipes to ALH ones.

Further, if there where boost leaks I would expect a code for deviation from requested.

Been reading a lot of old threads and there seem to be a few things to look at. I am going to more thoroughly check the N75 and turbo, as well as change the tandem pump that I have been meaning to get to for a while because of a leak.

Welcome other avenues look at too. Don't be shy, throw out your ideas please.

Don't think it could be the cat plugged, due to the intermittent nature of this issue.
