Hi, usually this concern is caused by loose intake tubes at air cleaner to intake, intake to intercooler,and turbo to intake these rubber tubes sometimes collapse and leak check them out, the gasket is paper at the throttle body.Thanks

I have an orange prong style this missing paper gasket could be the cause. Have replaced all vacuum all points at which leaks could happen. I've replaced all sensors and the engine wire harness turbo cartridge. Last night unplugged the wastewater solenoid which ended up making my turbo glow red thank god it didn't cease up
