Driving around town is fine. Just 'babying' it... but recently I wanted to lay into it some... thats when I noticed it wants to act up. It sputters like it is choking. I observed that the air fuel will drop to 12/11 and little lower. It was over boosting at one point not ridiculously but a bit more than normal when I was getting into it.... It acts this way when it starts to boost heavy it will act like it is coughing per-say. I have read a lot of information lately and just cannot put my finger on the issue.

Had the same problem all of a sudden at about 12000 km. Gap for my stage 2.5 is 22 thou, if poor idle, increase by 1 thousandths till its good.

Not sure what stage kit u have. But smaller gap is for high Boost/ rpm and wider gap to get better idle. What gap r u at?

Could be a number of things.... Coil gone bad... Vanos selinoid possibly... Boost leak....It's hard with the kit as u cannot get the codes because r kit throws so many... U could do a obdIi scan and see what u get..see if any codes r out of the ordinary with r kit.... Bad sensor is possible.... Is ur Aem u locked ? If so download the logs

Well I do a lot of travel tuning but I also have a shop in TN that I do quite a bit of remote tuning/work with, but they are up in Knoxville which if I remember right is about 4 hours from you so probably not the most convenient.

Plugs helped a huge amount.
My gaps were all over the place on the old ones.

However I believe I found my issue to be a break in the harness. The plug that is for the wastegate had a wire that backed out...

The plug itself reads 47 PED? It is a blue connector that is used all over the harness. I went to the auto parts store because it looks like a headlight plug... yet no luck.

Any thoughts on where to find a replacement plug?

Put up a picture of the connector, I likely have them but don't recall what HPF used for those.
