    I have a 2009 SS and while I was driving I accelerated quickly and started to get 4 CEL codes. P2178, P0089, P0101 and P0106. I Googled them separately to get an idea of what they are but I can't figure out what would be causing them to come on all at once... Does anybody have any suggestions on where to start?

    Did you hear a pop at the same time those codes came up?

    You should look at the P2178 first, typically that's a blown intercooler end tank or a destroyed condenser bar, so check it and the rest of your pressurised intake tract before messing with the other codes.

    P0101 is your MAF sensor, might just need cleaned.

    P0106 is your MAP sensor on the cold side charge pipe, may need cleaned, possibly replaced.

    P0089 is your high-pressure fuel pump regulator, probably needs replaced, here's the diag sheet http://5hizn1t.vacau.com/1957290.htm

    Yes, there actually was a pop. It holds boost fine. No rough idle. Everything seems 100% great on it. I'll check though, thank you.

    Betting your passenger side intercooler end tank is cracked. Heck, I'm hoping it's something that easy.

    I'll check tomorrow morning. If it is, where can I get a replacement? I don't mind paying more for something good but always wouldn't mind getting it for a decent price.

    Well I didn't see any cracks or loose hoses. I'll double check but where would you recommend starting next on this situation?
