Guy in a 32 Ford rat rod parks next to me and after talking awhile he asks about my engine. We take a look and I immediately notice an o-ring sqeezing out between the intercooler and the pipe to the turbo. WTF? Oh yeah, too much boost cuz numb nuts here forgot to reinstall the boost line to the wastegate! No wonder it felt awesome! Got my handy factory tool kit out and fixed it. Still felt good with just one bar.

Great Day for driving and I had fun.
I guess that means you don't have the overboost switch hooked up...
