Re: how is it possible :)

did you mod it yourself, the mods will change your boost. has it been mapped for the mods?

Re: how is it possible :)

needs mapping, also drive it very steady and as little as possible to you do (not at all is best). that many changes will have probably change the air fuel ratio and push it hard could kill your engine.

The boost cut is the ecu's way of crying enough and trying to prevent the engine self destructing.
