      Ok i have a 01 jetta wolfsburg with a AWW engine code.

      i have :

      FMIC
      HKS bov
      turbo inlet
      Unitronic stage 2
      Boost controller
      stage 1 clutch kit from ECS

      So the problem im having is weird. When i take off from a stop sometimes i will hear the turbo spool up loud and the bov does the PSHHHH but i never let go of the gas.I take off and i press the gas slow and even and as the car starts going ONLY SOMETIMES boost will build quick and the bov just randomly opens without me even letting go of the gas. Most will say get rid of the MBC and the HKS .. well guess what with the N75 in place AND the forge DV it does exactly the same thing. so it cant be them. what could it be any ideas?

      Also it was doing it it before i got the chip in!

      maybe a bad wastegate ?
