He needs to check the wiring harness between the airflow sensor and the ECU.

Also proper logging of the readings - or more likely lack of them - will tell him more than reading the codes.

Significant gases are only released at high charging rates.

If the trickle charger is worth anything, it will be charging the battery very little so it's fine with the boot closed.

You might cause damage by flooring it with the issue.

Power surging on and off can also be caused by a faulty fuel pump.

Until you can log it properly including AFRs just drive off boost.

My guess would be widened clearances in the AYC pump system that make it harder to build pressure when warm and therefore fluid is less viscous.
