Default My turbo fell :(

hey gang, my turbo fell off my shelf today while I was pulling a motor... and well I think I killed my wastegate actuator. so I have 2 questions:
1. how can I test it to make sure it still works/is broken
2. whats a good place to buy just a actuator.

I inspected the rest and it looks dandy, and the internal wastegate itself still moves freely...

16g turbo.

I suppose you could hook up a bike pump to the actuator and see if it reacts...

FlyinMiata sells an adjustable actuator for $60.
