I DID IT!!!

well i just got done rebuilding my turbo. i put in the banks big wheel, did the ebpv delete, and tighted the poo outta the wg actuator. i started it up and let it idle for a few minutes while i put up tools and checked for leaks. none. took it down the road and was a little let down first by the sound, not much different than stock, and second, performance wise it seemed about the same also. but hopefully the turbo surge will be a little less while pulling my 5er... Well just wanted to tell you guys of my acomplishments and see if you guys have any feed back on my issues...thanks Rod

Yeah I bet once you put a load on it and get the boost up in the high teens or better it comes to life.
