Driving on the highway the other day, comfort mode, going to pass someone so I gas it about 1/2 throttle, drops to 5th about 3750 rpm, and I notice the power just dies off completely. So to investigate I roll down the windows and do it again, and right at around 4K rpm the turbo dies off and I lose all boost.
Boost is still hard in the lower gears 1-4 all the way to redline like normal.
Anyone have any insight? I figured maybe a vacuum leak? But that wouldn’t affect only the high gears. I thought.
anything helps! It’s stage 2 eurocharged tune catless dp and Weistec intake. Runs about 33-35psi.
Thanks!

only in the higher torque load gears ... wonder if a bit in the tune file got corrupted or something in the ecu-tcu chain went rogue
sure hope its just a software issue!

just a wild guess ... and do hope its an easy fix no matter what the real issue is
what bugs me about this case is the car is fine in lower gears?

Yeah it’s odd😂 pulls hard 1-4th like normal! And then 5-7 at 4250rpm turbo dies off completely. Feels like I took my foot off the gas entirely.
