Hello all, as I posted in my other thread Turbo flutter under hard acceleration, My car is having some issues. I was experiencing SURGE not flutter, and after having this problem on and off for about 3,000 miles, It finally worsened. It now sounds as if the wastegate is stuck open and letting boost out at a consistent rate when accelerating. I took off the downpipe to inspect the turbo a bit, and the wastegate did not seem loose, however, there is shaft play on my turbo. After looking at this, and hearing the god awful noises the turbo makes on a cold start, I can confidently say that my 2019 gti turbo is absolutely fucked. Car is on stock tune, with a catted downpipe. The car goes into the dealership on Tuesday and I would bet they're going to be replacing the turbo under warranty. Again the car is on stock tune with about 6,800 miles. The issue has been persistent almost since I got the car, so I am less disappointed and more just excited to feel full boost again. Thanks for everyone who responded to my other thread, I just wanted to put this out there for any other 2019 owners even though I most likely got a bad turbo from the factory.
