LOL, I don't drive it hard and it only detonates in the high RPM high Gear WOT range. I'm going to run a compression test this weekend to make sure there is no damage.

What is a powercard?

are you certain it's not the wastegate rattling? one long gear in boost with detonation would kill the rings.

My car is a total beast?

I'm going to tighten the wastegate arm once the engine cools. It's supposed to go shorter which will increase the boost if I tighten it enough?
