How many of you turbo owners will admit not getting the pressurized tube clamps tight at least once? First time you get the big foot down, it falls flat on it's face. Been there and done that.

Never. Except for ear;y in 2013 when I did it, and found help in this very website for the first time.

Can't say I didn't tighten the clamp properly because I never serviced it BUT after I did a WOT to merge on a highway the car died. Pulled over, disconnected the MAF plug and drove back and forth 30 miles that night. Next day in the daylight I found the popped hose leading to the intercooler. 2 minutes later the S70-T5 was back together. Ha Ha.

Help keep MVS on the web -> click sponsors' links here on MVS when you buy from them.
Also -> Amazon link
. Click that when you go to buy something on Amazon and MVS gets a kickback.
