      The car definitely registers the RPM's because yesterday it sat at about 800RPM for those few seconds it had a rough idle and then it died. So, that's good to know. Thanks for that info.

      Thanks Greg. I guess I should avoid the cheap made in china cables then. I wouldn't expect to get much functionality out of a $8 cable!

      The cable I was looking at on ebay jumped from $100 to over...

      Yeah, I plan on doing this. I suckered myself into buying this because of Black Friday deals. Meh, no biggie. Sticking with stock and looking at returning or selling this one.

      Yeah, I dunno guys but I don't think I'm going to f-around with this any longer. I don't want to take it to a shop or try to adjust the TIP on the turbo just to "see" if it will allow it to seat...

      Thanks again groggory. I'm almost certain this TIP is just a bad design and has issues. I'm pretty certain it fits onto the turbo fine but I might jack it up and take a look. I already took some...
