      okay so i cleared the code and drove for about 20 miles on the highway was 12 degrees out so didnt want to not have enough time to fully warm up. so after the 20 miles i still had a few miles to get home in 5th gear wot it would boost to about 19-21 psi then drop anywhere from 10-15 psi and bounce between there but never exceeding 16 psi.

      i dont even know where to start to look. i have no pcv, oil cap came off easy while engine was running so vac in crank case isn't higher due to a pcv (block off plate in my case) issue, cam follower was checked less then 3k ago and looked perfect

      the car surged horrible but the mil never came back on?

      stage 2 apr file, 3 in turbo back exhaust, bsh true-seal intake, bsh pcv block off plate, car idles around 800rpm. oil did look a tiny bit creamy but it had done tht the past two winters ive owned the car. last oil change was around 2k ago used m1 oil 5w-30(was just trying something new to see how much of it i burnt up)

      thanks for looking any help will be awesome

      That code and others indicate intake flap problems. First step is a software update, but if that's already done, then the intake flap motor has to be replaced.
