I was out testing my car Tuesday night - and heard a pop so I lifted, pulled over and checked everything. I found a vacuum line blew off - I was thinking no biggie. So I took off and jumped back on the car and it'd only go to 16psi. I checked everything I could think of Tuesday night, and nothing. All I could get is 16psi and the car sounded like a jet.

Last night I pulled the intercooler off to find that I had blown the weld off the bottom of the drivers side endtank where it meets the core! It looked like someone took a can opener to it!

I'm hoping to get some pics before I get it welded.

Lesson - check the simple stuff 1st!
