Started the car today and I hope to get it on the ground and provide some driving impressions tomorrow. It sounds pretty scrappy at idle! I don't have the bumper back on yet as I've taken the opportunity to remove the large rubber blocks from it and need to install a lighted license plate frame that hopefully arrives today.

However- I have noticed that my wastegate leaks out exhaust at ide! As I was going around checking for leaks etc I noticed that it was puffing out the dump pipe- I covered it with my hand and of course it quiets down. All I can think of right now is that perhaps the valve face isn't seating properly on the square valve seat after my time-sert work? Need to get back under there and see if lossening and snugging the WG to WG flange improves anything. I had tested it on the bench before the stud work and the valve did suck open at around 17psi
