I just installed my intake and chip the other day and decided to try a getting some more boost out of my stock turbo. I read that you can unplug the red wire leading from the wastegate to get more boost. After doing so, I took it to WOT, when I took my foot off, it made a strong "wooshing" sound. I'm fairly sure its because of the wire but idk how bad this is. Is my turbo going bad or is this normal when you get more air from a new intake? Btw, 210,000 miles and stock exhaust. thx.
