I've watched my exhaust pipe in the mirror and im not getting any black smoke. Since its an 04 i dont have a boost gauge (yet). Is this the normal turbo lag?
On an unrelated note a friends of mine is going to give me a superchips programmer. Should take it or just get a SCT?
Duplicate posts are bad enough, but you had to create 3 of them? I merged the 2 that had other posts and deleted the 3rd. Please pay attention to what you are doing.
To answer your question your VGT vanes may be sticking or you might have a leak in one of the up pipes. Or the Exhaust Back Pressure tube or sensor may be bad.
