Coolant line was rubbing the bottom of the compressor housing. This quickly explains the lack of ability to build boost quickly.

Easy fix indeed. ...A little RTV and a quick street tune right?

how about you fix it properly by welding it shut and then place the coolant line to not do that again.

How about you just remove the coolant lines and run only oil cooled?

Replace/weld up the pipe, get that coolant line fastened to something, and enjoy.

Here's the bad news: In order to make boost with that large of a leak, you've probably been running the turbo way past its max RPM. The turbo may start passing a little oil, and it may have a little more shaft play than normal. Keep an eye out for these things.

Awesome suggestions.... but... I'll be cutting a piece of flat aluminum, hammering it to shape using body blocks, and welding it back on. Grinding it back to shape and reinstalling

Stupid. Best Fix would be to Just put the hole in the nice groove and jbweld it in place. That's where it wants to go so let it go there.
