It’s been 2.5 months, with 4500miles, 3 shop visits and I’ve just now established the core limp mode issue. The turbo is toast thanks to a worn wastegate. Sidenote, the alternator is on the fritz as of the last 600 miles.

These 2 photos show the valve in 2 postions but in both photos the actuator has not moved, this is not good.

still really enjoy the car, hence putting tons of miles on it but its averages $700 a month not including gas or the impending turbo.
