And yeah, pull out pcv and shake it, if it rattles its fine.
I think that would work on an internal wastegate but not on my external.

and omg please clamp that hose... not sure why it's twisted like that either.

Normally when you turn or reset your ecu it is a good idea to let it idle for a good long while then drive around easily on it for awhile before you start really hammering on it. (Not saying you didn't.. you just didn't say you did.)
I have another problem now maybe its related to my symptoms. I was at advance auto parts and when i was leaving to turn on my car it would just crank and crank but it wouldnt start. Then finally it fired up very slowly stumbling. Any ideas? Im think about regapping my sparkplugs smaller.
