OK, after putting off an exhaust leak for almost 3 months (since i bought the car it was an added bonus of the purchase) I decided to fix it today.
It was the Manifold to Turbo flange, and the turbo to the o2 housing
I knew i was loosing power, but never this much
The blitz power meter ID on a 3rd gear run said 232 prior to the replacement.
After about 6 hours of work with cleaning up teh engine bay, changing oil, tranny fluid, and diff fluid, i finally wrapped everything up and got out to do some runs.
End of the story is that i pulled a 260 out of my ass on a legit 3rd gear run exactly the same as the first run. And it idle much better, and response is UBER quick.

I just wanted to let everyone know that the pesky little leak does actually do somethign horrible to your car, make it slow.

lol
wel li didnt think it was takign THAT much away, and the Power meter ID is decently accurate in a 3rd gear pull. As long as you have it calibrated correctly (i actually weighed my car with me in it on a scale)
