My car is having problems idling. Almost sounds like there's a performance cam in it. It'll sometimes idles high for a few seconds, then sputters & sometimes stalls. When I barely give it gas it sometimes sputters worse. If I give it lots of gas it sounds fine. It feels like it runs good out on the road & I'm getting 15 psi of boost. I recently had the sound ports covered & had the plenum ported. If the guy at the machine shop warped my case, will that result in the idling problem?

Since you had the blower off to do work you might have left something loose when putting the tubes back on etc, or they didnt seal up good, So I'd check for vac leaks first.

Boost leak at the exit of the SC top. I need one of those special spanner wrenches to get it tight cuz this is the 3rd time it's happened at the same spot!

Good luck..Ive never touched that I always unbolt the sc top from the blower and the tube from the IC, I leave that stud out of the accessory bracket too so its quicker to get off.
