the flutter is comprestion surge. which is not good for ur turbo.. Why ur losing boost i have know idea. Check all your piping, make sure that its still hooked up. do you have a 3 bar map? that could be it too.

I was beat by RKRamos.

1 out of the 2 3bar map sensors on the lower intercooler piping was cocked so that was why the car was doing that and losing boost thanks tho
