Are you sure you put the seat in the wastegate? Without it it will never close.

Well, patience paid off. Got it primed, reinstalled spark plugs and prepped for start up. Have a super small fuel leak, which I will fix with a new AN fitting.
The main issue I have is the wastegates. They are tials with the 5lb spring for break in. At idle they are open and blowing everywhere. Scared me $hitless at first when I started and heard that.
I initially thought I hooked up hoses wrong, ie switched top / bottom ports .. so I changed that, still no luck.
In a last resort before I left for family function, I hooked the top ports right to Turbo... still letting exhaust out.
Meanwhile, idling afr is 14.5-15.0 . Though I don't trust it because I have to believe that the wastegate taking most of the exhaust would.change something.
Any ideas fellas?
