Just bought 2nd one first one my wife has is stock and just bought mine and was told kicking in and out of limp mode because pipe came off rear turbo ......I put it on lift and confirmed it did .....so I ended up doing filter relocation and full bolt ons ,...still same thing so changed all the vacumn lines and Boost solenoid and still same but long story short It ended up being front turbo locked up ....but doesn’t end there......I noticed writing on block and couple different places with grease pen and bolt heads are little rusty looking so I was like this has a junkyard motor in it .......then after pulling turbos I found back behind rear turbo next to coolant line there is a hole in the block that been fixed ...will this hold up or should I stop now and look for a motor , I’ll post pics
