    New motor is in, runs smooth. No exhaust from turbo back so sounds nice :)

    Nah but ive noticed a huge increase in torque when it spools up.. Havent boosted it past 3 or 4 psi yet because its running high comp and i need to get it on the dyno so i dont pop the head gasket from leaning out

    You running high comp? Whats your fuel setup nath. Mines n/a pump, regulator. And turbo ecu and injectors. 8psi actuator i think i was leaning out at 10psi with the t3 on old motor lol

    Also when boosting old and new motor makes a kind of ticking noise, i dont know if its detenation or exhaust manny leak??

    timing u will need a timing light..
    as for the wastegate shudder.. its like a metal on metal clicking sorta sound... hard to describe. and will only do it when ur at ur boost level as the flap is opening and closing to maintain ur boost and not over-boosting..

    mmmm dunno it kinda sounds like a ticking but i remember my old motor used to do it when it was N/A with high rpms... probs exhaust manny leak or something? Put my foot down for the first time today... feels nice, lights up 2nd when comes on boost in the dry so cant complain about that
