Omg this car has been a nightmare

I appreciate all the hellos!! I have an 09 had it since new has been garage kept and was a ďplay carĒ. Times have changed and now itís my daily driver. I have installed a zzp dp k&n intake and had zzp flash my ecm after having the gm 1 installed.

the car ran like a raped date for a few months then I blew out the stock intercooler. Had a few codes of course but they were turbo related cause of a major leak. Thru some insurance juggling I had a buddy install what I thought was going to be a zzp ic with the new pipes which he didnít do so now Iím stuck with a ic that doesnít really match the car and a ton of codes. P0013 the exhaust actuator
P0236 turbo boost sensor
P0106 MAF sensor

Of course I called zzp for guidance and they are no help what so ever they tell me to bring the car in 🤤 yea ok!! So Iíve checked for boost leaks none. Iíve cleaned the maf, nothing there and replaced both actuators and nothing. The car always drives weird intermittent boost with a choo,choo,choo noise after I let off. Surging in fifth gear. No power sometimes where I damn near have to floor it in first to move. I donít know what else to do guys I canít afford another car so gotta fix this one please help!!! I buy lunch for whom ever can figure this one out!!! Thanks!!!

Forgot

i forgot to add too the P0236 doesnít always come up. If I reset the codes immediately the P0013 code comes up then the P0106 code comes maybe a day or two later which is strange cause the turbo does all this weird stuff and the first code is the exhaust actuator code!! Please help me!!!

Itís a jdm intercooler. It has two reducing elbows where the pipes attach to. There are no leaks I boost leak tested it up to 27 lbs and all holds good. The jdm ic was installed somewhat professional. He welded brackets and everything I just donít like the reducers cause he had to cut the hot and cold side pipes to get everything to fit but everything is tight and leak proof
