"Ok, I just got off the phone with Imaginauto. They said that the Tial wastegate prevent boost leakage WAY better then the factory wastegate. Due to the internal plastic parts in the factory wastegate giving out faster. Now I think I'm leaning towards the Tial."

That statement is not apples to apples. If the stock waste gate is freshly rebuilt and the TiAL is brand new they would most likely function the same.

I have a rebuilt factory wastegate on my engine. It works perfectly with no boost creep. It pegs the same number every time like clockwork. If someone gave me a TiAL I would use it but I certainly would not label the factory unit faulty without first spending the $50 to rebuild it.
