i had my sc for about a month, everything beeen dandy. till last week, when my exhaust gasket broke bc my exhaust is a lil too small. so tht was expected..

now today, im going home, boosted once or twice a day, nothing major. was in 6th gear doing 63.. when pressing the gas pedal, applying more throtle, i hear something beeen sucked , something from the intake i cant define whats wrong..

pulled over, poped the hood, checked for loose wire, the only wire i was able to find, was the 1 coming from under the blower and theres a hole which i think it goes it , that hole is located between the throttle body and the intake... if i dont give it enough throttle, everything works fine, but if i give it enough throttle, my intake does that weird sound... anyone got ideas?

im calling my installer tomorow, to get it checked out but i was wondering if someone had any issues..

no CEL.
what i suspect, its a line coming from under the blower and i think its supose to go in the hole that is located between the throttle body and the intake..

chris its more of a hose, i always read on here, the 1st thing that can go wrong was hoses or lines coming lloose, so that was my imediate reaction

i took a few pics, but they came out horrible..
if you apply more throttle, the car makes a weird sound , from the left side of the car..

By the way you discribe it bro, it seems like a broken flex pipe. But when you have a flex pipe broken the car sounds retarded and it looses hp/tq. What kind of headers do you have? You should get some skunk 2 rh. They are great and better then bcrh bc has no flex pipe neither.
