      I have a MKV GTI and I am having a problem with boost. As soon as the car hits 1 or 2psi the engine starts to bog and cylinders begin to missfire. I ran the vag-com and receive missfire codes for all cylinders and the got--Leak in Air Intake System P2279-002-Lower Limit Exceeded. Could this have anything to do with the faulty Diverter valves? Or should I be looking for Something else?

      PS: I have an EVOMS Intake installed but I checked all the connections and i DO NOT have a leak from my intake to MAF to turbo.

      Any Info would be great.

      I had almost the same problem, leak in air intake, It turned out to be a valve assembly on the top of the engine, my car misfired on every cylinder at idle only, and after getting warm a very loud wining/whistling noise started. It took VW 2 tries to find the problem. If you need I can get the paperwork out for the part number. Hope it helps let me know.

      check from Turbo to Intercooler all the way up to the throttle body. Possibly you have a hose paritally undone that is leaking.

      I'm having the exact same problem as you and this is getting very annoying.

      my brothers car did the same code and issue PCV valve had to be replaced..

      start there..

      is your car louder then normal have someone rev the engine a bit and listen near the valve see if you can hear air from the area..

      my brother also had the DV go bad at the same time but after replacing the DV we still got the air leak code and found the bad PCV valve (thanks to this forum )..
