hi,
let me get to the point here.......i tried to do a donut in the rain and the back wheels just hopped...real bad.......now the turbo isn't working right. the car drives but it won't go very fast.....top speed is like 35 mph the turbo spools up but all you hear is a rush of air.......then the car starts to die........the turbo is actually making the car slower when it's spinning. if anybody has any ideas....please help

Yeah that would be a monster boost leak it sounds like. The ECU is thinking you are boosting but the boost isn't making it to the motor so there is way too much fuel and you are bogging down. Check all your IC hoses and connections for holes or hoses that have popped off.

that hose that connects to the 3000 pipe tends to pop off on high revs..i had to get my pipings welded on to that pipe..check the IC hoses as stated above

lol yeah, sounds like a huge boost leak. check all the IC hoses pretty good chance that youve blown one of them off.

if your back end is hopping that badly just from spinning in the rain you might want to take a look at your suspension too. that hop is really hard on the car.

yea......the parking lot i did it in was a new parking lot.....it is really grippy......any where else i do it, it does it fine...............the hose that was the problem was the one under the turbo....where it connects to it........the pipe was very loose
