Another reason why I got the second car...to leave my Q50 at factory spec while I pursue my madness. With only an exhaust slapped on there...even with the AMS HX and coolant expansion tank, Infiniti would be hard pressed to deny a warranty claim.

This is the reason I didn't want to do any mods until the warranty was up, I may spend the money and take the LDP off.

Is there really a newer "improved" turbo since 2018? Or was that hearsay?

They did not say, all I know is that when the parts come in they will call me.

I think I would have told them to keep the car and give me a loaner until they get the parts.

Your service ticket write-up describes the sound I've been hearing for the past 7 months. I had my dealer look at it once and they deemed everything to be okay. Looks like I'll be heading back for another look. I'd rather get this kind of stuff resolved before winter.

I had to go back, and make sure he gave me the work order, the way he told me was I will call when the parts come in. I said no, put it in writing.

I don't know if I would call it improved but the old turbo part # (14411-5CA0A) has been replaced by (14411-5CA0C).

This was discussed on another thread already. See Page 6 for the connector that's no longer used. Besides that and the part number, no one actually has any solid information on what else was changed.

I didn't intend to start a new thread, I just wanted to let you know that I went in for one reason and came out a whole different outcome.
