A brief 3-4 miles drive to see the mother last night and I noticed that I was getting that "blow off" sound when shutting off under load. The first two things that came to mind were


  • This sounds amazing...but


  • This is leaking boost.


I wasn't so much losing power at this point so carried on cautiously. When getting to the quicker roads it was evident there was a power loss, Plenty of missing and the lack of boost was very noticeable.

Limped home and the problem was plain to see.

A resonator, one of two on this intake pipe had worked its way loose. Thankfully it was that easy.

It's plausible, Karl. I did tighten the rest of the clips while I was there.
