ok so my 89 mx6 turbo was runnin nice the other day and all of a sudden its on stock boost and i hit boost and it starts bogging. like rpms kinda die and it feels like the wheels are going to fall right off. but when i dont hit boost it seems to be fine. does anything come to mind
thanks

check for cracks
it is? mine is actually quite soft and flexible. it's when they get hard as a rock that the tears start showing up because they can't flex with the air pressure rising....

Btw...if you need another boot...i've got one and it's in pretty good shape. pm me if interested.
