Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't the boost taper off towards redline?
And to everyone saying shove the car back at the dealer or the likes, if it was that easy I would have by now. As of right now, the paperwork says the car was sold as is. I don't believe there is any sort of loophole around that. All I have is their word of mouth saying "the car was maintained perfectly, was stock, etc." Nothing was put in writing as far as that goes unfortunately. If anybody has any advice/experience on this, I'm all ears.
I'm in the process of hunting down the owner to see what was previously done on the car and from what I've heard it isn't good. Basically said he had a built motor. I'm seeing if I can confirm with the dealership what this guy said (in a round about way) and I guess I'm going to go from there.
As of right now, I haven't been able to get the car to throw the P0244 after I cleared it the last time. Just need to dig up some history on the car to find out what's been done to this thing.
