Default How to Port Wastegate?

After talking with the wonderful Dave a few weeks ago and he said before I put on my VF34 I should port the wastegate to prevent Boost Creep.... how do I do this?

if you have no idea then dont do it yourself.
a bad port job will ruin the exh housing, as you are already going to give up a tiny bit of efficiency already. too much in the wrong place and thats a nice looking paperweight.
You need a metal cutting bit and an air grinder (or drill and some snow to sit on it you are Kevin lol)
I can do it for you if you want. But I dont have the bit so.....

yeah, it seems to be a bellmouth downpipe specific problem.
IIRC he has a TXS turboback, which will creep...

I am thinking of going to an invida downpipe/some3 inch open cat back at some point. I wonder if that would creep (kinda a mute point now anyway, as I already ported mine, and I doubt I will bother to switch to that setup anyway)
