Nice work. Not the smoothest path back into the exhaust though.

I was mostly concerned with flow to the wastegate rather than out of. I still have boost creep like hell.

where are you getting the boost signal that goes to the wastegate actuator?

I've tried from the intake and from the turbo outlet on the IC piping. I'm going to port the hell out of it when I get back home and see if that helps.

after some discussion with the buddy who sold me the wastegate, i decided to reinstall my water injection, boost controller and see just how high the boost would go. my buddy claimed it would stop by 18psi or so. he was right. i set my boost controller for 18 and it holds. i was going to run that much eventually anyway. :D

Interesting. 18psi spring in it? It would be nice to run a little less i would think.
