    I just went for a drive this morning and I was watching my boost gauge normally the needle is buried at 140kpa and for some reason the most I could get was 130kpa only once other times it was 90kpa. wtf is going on here.
    There was also a few drops of oil on the front of my intake plenum.

    JB Weld should do just fine up to 24psi, I cannot say after that. There's plenty of people running it on their stock SS/TC intercoolers after taking off the condenser bar and filling the holes with it.

    o_O oh damn, that's a Hahn warranty claim my friend. Don't mess with it just contact them ASAP and see what they're going to do about it.
