    Made myself up a boost leak tester today. Good news is I've isolated a boost leak to the same area that is making the whining noise.

    More to follow. Gonna pull the IC off and determine if I have some loose connections or if there is a crack in some tubing.

    Sigh. Had the throttle body apart when I was diagnosing P2101 issues. Put it back just enough so it wasn't going to be an issue during tow.

    Long story short, told techs a couple times about the throttle body and other clamps are mostly just tight enough to not fall off. They tightened everything, but didn't put the 2 rear throttle body bolts in.

    Found them in the trunk still. Put them in, no more whine.

    In other news, checked the IC and its super clean. No oil bypass. Nothing in the hoses either, so that's something. I'll have to pull the TIP out in a couple weeks and double check the play in the turbo to determine if it's something I need to bother with over the winter.

    Question Re: Random MS3 Chat Thread

    OK, so finally got a bit of time to play around and start working on the suspension again. Last time I did this I had camber plates and coilovers, so things were simpler. This time I'm doing struts, and I've run into something I'm not sure about.

    I have the top hats off the stock struts after compressing the spring and pulling everything apart. Doing some try fitting of the top hat, insulator, and the dust boot, and that's where things are confusing me. I don't have much thread out of the top, so there is no way to really attach things together. Couldn't really find any one else doing the Bilstein install, so here I am. There is a small kind of rubber/plastic sleeve under the insulator that seems to be hanging things up. Not sure if that is intended to stay or come out?

    B12 on the left, stock on the right:

    Ok think I got it. The B12 has internal bump stops, so looks like I need to pull the bump stops from the spring insulator.

    Things look much better. In other news, the bump stop was destroyed My buddy says that should buff right out though.

    I'm running a Thinkware F770 with rear cam. Great camera, decent moble connectivity and software. All the features, plus good picture quality. Whatever you get go with a hardwire kit as it makes it completely set and forget. I got mine from BlackBoxMyCar.com as they are Canadian and I got excellent service from them over the phone.

    Thinkware now has an F800 and F800 Pro as well. I would not hesitate to recommend Thinkware at all.
