I installed the mbc and boost guage got everything ready...went for a run and forgot one thing...that was to tighten down the clamp on the hose going from the intercooler to the turbo ...it fell off and the car died almost immediately...we popped the hood and found out it came off and put it back on. The car kinda sputtered for a couple seconds and then was just fine. I was just wondering if that did any damage?:confused:

i did the same thing (hose popped off)
don't think it'll hurt anything because the maf automatically shuts the car off. if it ran while it was off i would imagine it would hurt the engine, but i wouldn't worry about it
