The car ran fine off boost, but when I'd start spooling, a sort of "whooshing" / "whistling" sound that wasn't coming from the turbo or wastegate could be heard. Plus I noticed that the engine was having a hard time maintaining boost all the way to my redline. Being that I'm now on 965 intercooler running gear, I thought that my billet compressor by-pass valve might be stuck, but then I noticed that the intercooler seemed to be sort of cocked where it fit on the throttle body. Further inspection revealed that the O-ring was cut.
