Nice work so far! Are you planning on getting a DSP? If so you might want to run a stock wastegate instead of the AGP one.

Thanks guys.. Yes I'm going to be getting a dsp because I have the 3bar map and tip.. Since I already need a dsp I might get stg 2 also.
And ur suggesting I run a stock wastegate with a dsp?

Yeah, if you look around the forums most people suggest you run a stock wastegate with DSP so you don't see partial throttle boost

dont forget to plug the oil feed for the balance shafts and while your in there make sure you mod the mains for 360deg oiling!

pick up the stage 2 wastegate... It's the one you want and will need. I think when he said "stock wastegate", he meant NOT an AGP or other aftermarket one. Can't wait till Carlisle this year.

Ok I'm on the hunt for a stage 2 wastgate and I'm gonna sell the agp.

Here's a couple updated pics nothing major.
With stuff being powdercoated it's gonna b a mix between 3 colors: gloss black, satin black and a secret color that I'll try not to reveal until motor is done.
