Quick view of down the neck of this thing....
And here you can see how thin I left the entrance to the wastegate. Certain my rocketship will know which way to go.
There was a lot to remove coming into the wastegate, the walls were not even flat, it's like it was designed to aim AWAY from the wastegate.
I am a little worried about air going to the turbines getting a bit tripped up on the sharp rise heading towards the exhaust fan, but.... if I take it out, I imagine it'll hurt flow through the wastegate. Is this just a tradeoff I have to make?
Oh, it didn't come across in the picture so well, but I removed a lot of material. I think the entire area under the ruler here was removed.
Yep. that crack goes all the way through. The smaller one, however, does not. Interesting.
Lastly, one more pic of the entrance:
And a pic of our fearless warrior, throwing cation and $0.50 in drill bits to the wind to get his holes reamed out for the bigger studs.
(gosh, I hope I don't need washers. What if the unthreaded area is too large?!?)
Your Hero (yes, we all dress like that in San Diego):
(sorry for so many pics on this, I just never expected the drill to hold up, and that I would be bringing the part in with a 3mm deep hole in one to a shop where they would laugh at me)
Ok, time for actually working now, since I'm actually at work. :-)
