You probably think I'm being crazy... I'm actually a pretty savvy car guy.

Hard shifts are coming when I'm in DSG mode, not full automatic. When I get up to full boost (15-16 psi) and hit the paddle to shift, it's a very HARD shift, not enough to make the car shake, think more of the clutch engaging hard when shifting. Back when I had a manual, I would liken it to dropping the clutch hard during a shift.

Still not sure that it's not a vacuum leak going to the DV valve that was causing the boost loss, but also wondering about the hard shifts now. Not sure if they are related or concurrent issues.
