Default Need Help!

So i purchased a 95 miata with the earlier Flyin' Miata turbo with fm intercooler 2months ago, its tuned on Link Ecu

Last night i was going partial throttle, and all of a sudden it bogged like crazy, it was dark so i couldn't see anything

Today, i looked at everything, and drove it around the block, tried to WOT, but it felt like it was bogging or misfiring like crazy

Found out my heater hose is squirting out a stream of water on to the CAS sensor, i know i need to replace this heater hose...but would a hose cause my car to drive like this? or could it be something else?

thanks

Did you happed to see how high the temp got? Or was the car out of water.

I'd fix the hose. Fill the car backup. And see what happens.

check your oil and see if it looks like milk coffee.

But yes water on electrical, can make things not run.

alright, still feels like misfiring or boggin when i start building boost

could it be a vacuum leak that would cause it to misfire/bog once boost starts building?

The link is MAP based so vacuum/boost leaks don't really effect it much. It sounds like you are misfiring, make sure you don't have coolant trapped in the spark plug wells, or on the connections on the coil packs, or anywhere else. Probably worth pulling the plugs and taking a look to be sure they look good as well.

well the leak for the heater hose was right below my CAS, it was squirting a little stream right at it

i already check the sparkplugs

how would i check the Coilpacks, could water have damaged the coilpacks or the CAS?

is there anything i can look at in the linkpad to see whats out of the norm?

Thanks
