Have had a stuck wastegate cant remember if open or shut but resulted in Turbo not working at all and car feeling like a 1.1.

Whats the likely damage caused? Car now with dealer pending warranty claim.

This is my Scooby.  To set up your own Scooby, go to your user cp, and click 'Edit Settings'.

if its stuck open, you wont produce much boost, so the engine will feel flat, damage is very unlikely. If its stuck shut, you will produce too much boost and could blow your engine as a result.
