Yeah, you went into limp mode. Should go back to running like normal after a restart. But the wastegate pivot pin is probably worn out on the turbo - happens to most of them with age.

Edit: just noticed this was Gen 2 section. You'd actually be the first p0299 I've heard of on one.

Is it clamped on, with an adjustable clamp, or is it like the stupid Gen 1 clamp, at the inter cooler, and it’s just held on with a snap ring?

It has popped off a few times. The car has been at the dealer for almost two weeks now. They have been working with the engineers in Detroit. Nobody can figure it out.

Glad to hear you guys made it ok.

That has happened to a few people now, maybe we'll make an upgrade :)

I've also seen that hose blow apart right where it goes to the throttle body

Glad to see that you made it through that disaster.
