After a little hunting and cramming myself under the decklid I found that the line is loose at the wastegate. I mean, like loose enough that I can twist the accessible end and the line will twist on the wastegate mount. This could be where air is escaping.

While we are on the topic, I found myself asking how this system works. How does the intercooler correlate to the pressure of the wastegate and when it opens? [/QUOTE]

That could be all the problem you have. The WG controls the IC/intake boost pressure; so, diferent spring = diferent pressures. However, with the IC/WG hose disconnected the WG never opens so you're getting full turbo pressure (ways over .8 OEM) W/O any release... and that triggers the switch to shut off the fuel pumps. FYI, Some folks use a manual "control knob" in the cabin to control the boost pressure... big power BUT it's like a monkey with a loaded gun consequences. M2c
