You don't sound very mechanically inclined. Don't take offense to that. I'm just saying that if the car isn't doing what it's supposed to then these tests need to be done by someone who knows what they're doing. So call up CBRD and schedule it to get done. Just because someone tuned the car doesn't mean there wasn't a pre-existing boost leak or another issue. Could be a loose coupler, injector seal, loose clamp, a gasket, hole in the pipe itself, torn vacuum line, etc etc. A boost leak test will tell you the issue

Im just saying that it didnt have a leak when i was there. Car was tested for leaks at CBRD. Im saying the car felt the same way its been since the tune. No loss in power but its obvious not 100 percent. Obviously if they missed a leak after charging me a pretty penny im not too happy

Looks like you have it all figured out, enough to argue with everybody giving you advice after you asked for advice.

Good luck!

Yeah pretty much. You should probably be teaching us if you've got it all figured out already

I had an APS BOV before i got my efr kit and it leaked anything over 26 psi. ended up blowing my BBX because of it. there is a fix where you wrap your adjustment screw with teflon tape
