been told that performance parts actually mess with the ecu and it lowers the boost to protect the engine.

even an exhaust or a new intercooler can make it do it apparently.

Adding a BOV or cutting out the baffles wont hurt it the boost, Id take off the boost solinod and clean it out with WD40, mine did the same thing

how many km's has it done? has the spark plugs been changed?

if its done over 70,000 on the original plugs then get some new ones. that should fix the problem
