@alexw - You could try cleaning the MAF, but more than likely that isn't at issue. I'd check all connections between the MAF and intake manifold to ensure they are air tight. If the system is claiming a leak, there probably is one.

@BobCross agreed

A: What is an A/R ratio?

Bob Cross What does the term A/R ratio mean? In almost all automotive applications that you are likely to see, turbos are a radial flow, snail shaped turbine section attached to a similar compressor section. As we see in this illustration from the Turbocharger Fundamentals article: How is it c...
