Contact HPA. I've heard that clamp leaked for a few people as well so it may be worth having it welded instead. The stock turbo has a different outlet pipe so there's no clamp to re-use.

No problem. Try reaching out to the people who posted that for more details on the turbo outlet.

Franco, sound like a boost leak. I had that leak as well where the intercooler hose connects to your pancake pipe. Check that connection.

FYI, I had a new ring, offset coupler, o ring and V-band installed on my turbo. The leak sounds the same and my car randomly struggles to build boost. Sometimes ill peak properly at 25-26 PSI and sometimes it will just slowly build up to 15 PSI when i floor it. Anyone else have this leak or similar symptoms?

Im talking about a different leak on yours. Not at the turbo outlet assembly but where your intercooler hose connects to your pancake pipe.
