On a side note, I know for a fact my turbo actuator needs an adjustment. I have the infamous boost jump around 1800 rpm. Itís like nothing is happening then all of the sudden BOOM lots of boost

Probably sticky veins more than the actuator. They are electronic on brms.

Have you had the oil checked for cam wear?

Negative. I also know I have pretty bad cam wear. Trying to drive the car as little as possible. If I remember correctly, this was the #1
