Advanced the timing from 4btdc to 11btdc, 11psi of boost, Set the TPS Via ohm-meter (yeah, finally did it properly), got the intercooler re-tig welded to withstand the vibrations from the engine and uhh... I guess that is all.

On a side note, the TOB is starting to squeal like a motherfucker, so I got a clutch kit on order. ACT and Centerforce arent options for the sprint, so i'm forced to fun a dynapack... Mabye i can find a option for a lighter flywheel while things will be apart.

so instead of opening/closing a valve inside of the turbo, it re-routes the exaust when it reaches a preset boost level down a secondary pipe?

pretty much. you can recirculate it back into the exhaust system or dump it into the atmosphere. pretty much it just regulates how much boost is being created to protect the turbo from spinning beyond its capabilities and burning out. an internal wastegate wouldn't be able to handle that big of a turbo.

are u sure its an external wastegate? i would assume that turbo came with an internal wastegate stock. essentially a wastegate relieves pressure so you dont overboost. and also you shouldnt run a bov to atmosphere on your car, because i believe it was meant to recirculate air back into the intake.

a wastegate is a wastegate PERIOD. If its internal that means its built into the turbo. External is external to the turbo like shown above. Its job is to regulate airflow to the exhaust side of the turbo allowing you to control boost levels. All turbo cars from the factory are recirculated but depending on the airflow meter can be run vented.

Perfect 154psi compression test across the board on a dry test. Now I gotta figure out what stock compression is.

You used the degreaser correct?

Forgot to ask if you had the bottle still. That stuff works excellant.
