I realize this is now a 3 week old thread, but just getting to putting my stock WG back in the car. I thought I'd give it a quick test - pump just over 1 bar of pressure on the "control" line (disconnected from intercooler). I have it still removed from the car, and when putting on the pressure, I hear hissing from the valve stem area and can feel the air escaping through the outlet.

This isn't good, is it? Any of you guys performed a simple test on the stock wastegate to check its operation? I have a 1 bar Andial spring in the WG.
