    Boost leak? Bad map on the car?

    already checked pipes couldn't find any leaks , would it be good chance of being bad map then?

    Could be, if everything mechanically is sound, then software could be a issue. Is the MAF all good?

    Boost leak mate.... I had this and was confident I didn't have one. Get a smoke these if you can't find it.

    Mine was after the intercooler
