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

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?
