    First things first, have you checked all the boost hoses, they are well known for splitting ?

    The thread here, talking about replacements, shows which hoses, hose 1 is more common, but hose 2 goes as well, and it is usually somewhere out of site, so have a damn good check/feel underneath them. (and yes it is easier if you take the plastic engine cover off, just three torx bolts)

    Mine did this too. it went from new boost hoses, to new vacum pump, turbo and a ecu upgrade. Has done it a few times since but i'll live with it. Tho hoses are the most common

    Nope, I am still updating that thread when/if I get any further, as I last said at the end of that thread, they have not replied to my last emails, so I have to assume work is still in progress.
