Gotcha

 replied 2 years ago

39 is likely the main part of your problem.... EGR problems and VNT turbo problems. Likely plugged with soot/carbon buildup

Monitor your boost pressure and also check for leaks in your turbo and intake piping and opertion of your VNT turbo as the turbo may not be opening up for full boost
