05 92x aero issues, help please with update!

in neutral at a red if it give it a little gas to take off and it has a slight hesitation and driving down the road trying to accelerate under boost above 4K it feels like it hits a brick wall... any suggestions before I start digging into it? No CEL either the car is stock besides a 2.5 exhaust and I just noticed the wastegate actuator and turbo housing has a line directly to each other with no restrictor pill , and the line from The air intake is plugged with a screw. Could that be it?

Put new lines with restrictor  pill and T to wastegate actuator and lime from air intake to wastegate actuator, car idles a lot smoother but still has hesistation, tomorrow is plugs and hopefully that'll help fix it!

You really need to go Stage 2 to get rid of the inherent turbo lag on these cars.  Especially the catted up pipe on the 05 models.

I would think a Vacuum leak   ,,,    You can take your maf hose off and plug it to a piece of PVC wit a Cap on it..   Put a valve stem through the hole you drilled and use compressed air and charge the intake,  Don't put A lot of pressure in in, but if the Accordian starts to get big. you don't have a leak..  If you do you should hear air.

Be   carefull with how much pressure you put into it.. you can blow the cam seals..
Drives around fine? It's just when you stomp on it?

Even when your just cruising and go to give it some gas up a hill it has a little hesistation and when you go WOT above about 4K

When the engine was a little under normal running temperature it is fine, I'm beginning to think this thing might have been tuned by a previous owner

My 2005 Saab 92- x aero died while driving 2 days ago and I was able to restart it and get it home but there is a loud clanking noise coming from the engine or transmission area while it's idling I don't what it could be it started having problems after I refilled the oil because it was on the low side I know I bought the right oil for my car but what is causing the noise
