First off i just want to give a special thanks to dieseltron for his custom pipes they fit great, and everyone else that gave my tips and links to get this done. Now for the performance news, it seems to have a lot more turbo lag, with the d66, water-meth and the cooler and mods in my sig i still see 1350 to 1400 when i accelerate to about 80mph! Is my pyro off or?? Also i made a boost leak detector and found a few small leaks and fixed them and before the install i could see 35psi and know i can barly get over 25 now:confused: any ideas off whats going on? I planed on a 3-4psi loss but not as much as im seeing and not the turbo lag. Also im not blowing the boots off ether. Let me now thanks guys!

Glad to hear you found your problem. I was thinking it would be the plenums.

Use the good grey sealer on those plenums. Part number is in the Library.

Thanks for all your guys help i got the passanger side done and cleaned up the top of the driverside. Then layed a nice bead of silcone along there seams how it wasn't leaking as bad and it looked like i needed to pull the turbo. Also i ened up using the "Right Stuff" that permatex makes. That stuff is great and expensive too! At first i didn't know what to do about the passanger side bolt that hits the hpop untill i relized the plenum is slotted for that bolt so you can slide it out. Thanks again and i'll let you know how it runs.
