just done a engine swap, put everything back together but when i put my foot down it seems like the wastegate is opening at 3000rpm and the car loses power. i checked all the boost pipes and they all seem fine. any idea's?

:loser: figured out the problem after hours of changing boost pipe and rattling my brain. intercooler pipe had come loose behind the bumper. god dam it

yeah remember doing the sparkplugs earlier this year, had to loosen the intercooler feed pipe from the turbo to get to a couple of loosening belts (was also changing supplement belts too)... all done took it up the road waited for the boost and ....luuuuuuuuurrrrrrrrrchhhhhh.... nothing ..not a jot. got to work, checked where we'd been over and jubilee clip around the rubber elbow wasn't tightened up.. nipped it up nice n tight.. job done hehehe!
