Fortunately no damage to car apart from a minor wheel curb scrap, and wheels out of alignment and managed to miss all cars.

I think the freight to New Zealand may kill the price... Will look up those brands

Default Re: 2008 JDM Sti - EFR7670 - Turbo Bog/Flutter issue

I am having an issue under when I first go under boost at about 4000rpm when the turbo just makes a big fluttering noise, boost goes up and the car goes nowhere....

Anyone know what this could be?

Under hard acceleration it gets past this boggy flutter stage after a few seconds, then goes into full boost and pretty much like normal.

Wondering whether the cold temperature around (5 deg C) 41 degrees Fahrenheit would have something to do with it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Default Re: 2008 JDM Sti - EFR7670 - Turbo Bog/Flutter issue

It is either an exhaust or boost leak, it blew the turbo heat cover off, otherwise it may be the wastegate... getting to checked out on Wednesday... grrr i hate all these issues , although the joy i get from the car makes up for it for sure.

Issue was a misfiring spark plug, thankfully not major, still had a big effect on the car.

Got the Brakes Pads, Fluid done and the Rotas shimmed when it was getting checked.

Motul Dot 5.1 Brake Fluid
Endless MX72 Front and Rear Pads
