ok to start off this thread is a word of warning and possible fix for someone who has the same issue. my car is a 1999 Passat 1.8t tiptronic wagon all stock except for a k0mpresd stage 1 tune(Ian). my issues consisted of random bucking/jerking/hiccup at 3-4k rpm and overboost to 18-20psi rough idle and poor gas mileage 15 mpg or 18 on a good day grandma style driving. turns out my banjo bolt coming off the n75 on the intake side of the turbo had backed itself nearly all the way off. so after days of diagnosing a electrical/sensor issue a simple bolt was causing all of these issues. so you have had these issues check this guy because I only have 84k miles on mine and it hasn't been touched since the car was built.

if this post helps anyone I will be very happy because I was stressed out bad that I was having some bad luck.

happy :wrench: everybody and love the veedub
