im tryin to set the wastegate (internal) onto the flapper- - do i need to use a vac hose to ease the pressure on the actuator? i cant get the arm to the flap and im not so weak

When I installed it before, it only held 10 psi because i extended the arm to reach the flapper and I suppose it was opening too soon.

Now im setting it back but it wont reach, so what can I do to get it to reach now? Its tough as all hell!

Vac pump or similar?

Thanks guys

Nm, used twine to pull it up, stood on turbo and popped it in.

hopefully ill be at full boost now

is it common for the flapper to become loose and make tons of noise?

Now its leaking oil from the return line and spooling to 30psi+ again.

If i set the wastegate too short, will it cause me to pin the gauge?

Another day wasted.

if you crank the wastegate to tight it wont open enough and your boost will continue to rise... loosen it up man [up]

thought so... thx

Also, If your flap isnt closed when it should be, it WILL affect idle and drivability

spool and peak boost will be affected if its too open as well
