Yup. Started cutting out like a bad dog yesterday. Good timing, huh? Warranty. 100%.

I've been telling him for a month or two he had a vac leak. Sure as **** did. Stovepipe broke (cracked) between the EGR and the SC.

I bet if he got poor gas mileage it was due to the boost gauge being buried.

I know I read! lol Go figure. I still need to get myself a new one. It doesn't hurt my mileage at all. But I do need to fix it asap.
