OK boys, I don't know what to make out of it....

I unhooked my boost source to the wastegate. One would assume that once you unhook this you should get a crap ton of boost. Well guess what, it pegs at 22psi ahahhahah. So then I decided to wire the flap shut (maybe the back pressure was opening the wastegate), nope still 22psi.

I unhooked it and left the flap open for ****s and giggles, 2-4psi max.

Now I'm thinking the the wastegate flap is not sealing. This makes sense as I'm always boosting a lot later and can't surpass 22psi.

Has anyone seen this before. I'm just that lucky? FML.
