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?
Did Dom give you 3 maps for break-in? Base plus one rich an one lean? I'm sure Dom tuned absolutely no boost in the break-in map so you will just run off waste gate pressure. I would think that you would run a .8 or 1 bar springs? Did you pressure test for boost leaks? Hey it fired up so that's good
