no the bend was "ok", I shimmed it closed at the mounts, but the actual wastegate blows air past the rod above like 1psi. Im sure the diaphragm is kaput. I dropped my turbo right after I pulled it a few months back, but when I pressure tested the the wastegate it was actuating fine, why I thought it was ok. Then I tested it again on driftem's suggestion and sure as sugar its blown out.
