Just got engine back in and it is surging while driving. More so under wot or load. Doesn't surge at idle. If I hook up th AE and close the vgt and drive it doesn't surge at all and with the vgt open it surges a little. So is it the vgt selonoid? Im only getting about 20 lbs boost max. Turbo was cleaned and put back together with antisieze. Cant find any exhaust leaks. I will list all work done.
