Just picked my car up from my mechanic, seems great until I went into higher boost. After 10psi I just started losing power and didn't go anywhere. This happened twice so I drove it back to the mechanic. Him and I are thinking boost leak at one of the fittings. What do you think?

What was he working on? Possibly knocked something loose that is vital in building boost as you mentioned.

He had done this trick on other angle gears already, just a different way. He was more than happy to do it and really liked JanHargis' idea. Here's a breakdown on the prices:
labor 5hrs: $200
Sleeve: $106
angle gear oil: $36
3 sealing rings: $40
O ring: $10


Bam $392 out the door, my tech kills it.

Yeah it's only him at a shop in his garage. If anyone ever needs service that's worth the trip(things that take a long ass time to do) hit me up and I'll link you with him. He did most of my mod installs too, he'll do anything you want on the caRs.
