I try to only flame when necessary, but Red Rocket please re-read your post again to understand why we think you sound "flame worthy".
Just trying to help STI owners out, but this thread will grow out of hand now.

Kevin, I have listened to you a lot on this board. Once again you have displayed your unbelievable ego.
Wow, you guys are just so super! Yay, slam me when I rightfully take credit for my accomplishment. Get off your god damn high horse.
No kidding I'm not the first person to port a wastegate, or any other car part for that matter. But when I did it, there were several people on NASIOC struggling with boost creep, with no solution known, and I was the first one to get up the balls to take a grinding bit to my $900 turbo to solve the problem. I didn't even know if it would work, but it did. I researched it it on the net to get tips, so of course it's not an original concept. But I take credit for bring the concept to NASIOC and the US subaru community. Austin also deserves alot of credit, I bounced the concept off him, then he did it after me and made a nice writeup.
(I won't even go into how I did it outdoors on one of the coldest weekends of the year, at a "garage day"....that's a little NESIC legend).
You two can bite me.
