      Tested the actuator. Starts cracking at ~5 PSI and stops travelling at ~10 PSI. I'm trying to Google to find out what's normal.

      When I released the pressure on the Mittyvac, I couldn't hear the...

      I've done this two days in a row now... at lunch I go out and just poke and prod the wastegate rod for a bit. Start up the car and let it idle. It'll idle great. No hiccups whatsoever. There's...

      I think the diaphram is good, but I'm going to verify this evening. What I'm referring to is the sleeve that links the outside rod to the internal wastegate flap. I'm thinking it's worn and leaking.

      I have a general question: what is used to seal the area around whatever connects the external wastegate linkage to the internal flapper? I'm fairly certain it's leaking.

      How can I test the wastegate actuator? I have the Mittyvac... connect it and work my way up to 25 PSI? Note where it cracks? When should it begin to move? From what I understand, I should hear it...

      I'm in Vancouver and planning to pick up a manual R in 2016.

      Like you, there are things about the R that I don't prefer. Ideally I'd like a two door, but despite currently being single, I have to...

      What's most frustrating is after the downpipe was replaced (I think the old one was partially clogged), I've had very brief glimpses of how the acceleration is supposed to be. Like out of nowhere it...

      So my higher temps are still responsible for hitting such a rich AFR? Downpipe is new. What else could be causing high EGTs?

      So what should I be looking for as far as exhaust gas temps? I just got the new downpipe put it. Max temp I saw last night was 955 C in VCDS.

      Because of the deletes? 17705 was there with the base Unitronic Stage 2 flash prior to being flashed with the deletes.

      I've opened two tickets with them about 17705. Both times they said it was a hardware issue. Of course, a lot of other people have Unitronic Stage 2, and I can't find many other posts about people...

      Yeah it isn't a problem getting it fitted. There's a decent shop close by. I'll probably have them make sure that there isn't any strain anywhere else in the catback, but it's Milltek, so it should...

      Alright, I definitely have enough stuff to take away and do. If I'm up late enough I'll probably grab the logs tonight.
