is this a blown diaphragm? i have a new line connecting into the intercooler with new clamps, so no leaks there,...

is there anything else that could have "broke" inside the wastegate? i should be aware of,...

i will be upgrading to a set of fabspeed headers in the new future and wondering if now is a good time to replace with a 46mm tial, or just rebuild the stocker
"..I have a wastegate dump.."

Something like a BOV, Blow-off-valve, to DUMP pressure the instant the throttle valve closes...? If so it sounds as if it's partially (full..?) open full time.
