Ha! Must be something about Summit Point... were you by chance there for the BMW CCA NJ event on July 22/23?

When mine failed, I went into a sort of limp mode, where the car wouldn't make any boost. No idea how much I was down on power, but it felt like a good 40-50% reduction. I still ran some laps in a couple sessions, and I ended up learning a lot about efficiently carrying speed through corners, in what amounted to being a 3600 lb momentum car.
