Easy way to check if it's wastegate related is take off the vacuum line to it. It should over boost. Just don't for it too long. Let off once it goes over target boost. If it doesn't reach boost still, it's the wastegate

Did You figure out what the noise is yet? It could be a bad timing belt tensioner.

Talked to Ryan today and for now we're assuming a small exhaust leak.

But your idea could be right I'm sitting at 99,892 miles so my 100k-120k maintenance is up.

Ok. Just throwing it out there. Hopefully it's just an exhaust leak.

Just look around for a used v2 accessport thats compatible with your Fozzy. I've seen the,m range from $150-$300. Or you could always get a new v3 for $650...

Simple plug and play, a 5 year old could do it. If you need help there's a lot of people in the area that could lend a hand.

I don't mean a pro tune, but a simple OTS tune. Not everyone can be as lucky as you. Though I know you aren't running the factory tune on your STi...

Haha yeah the soobie God's have been good to me for sure. But he really won't need a tune unless he wants to utilize the flow for a power increase.
It will increase on its own.
Correct, I am only running stage 2 91 Oct tune on my car. And you know my mods...
