That wastegate should not move up and down like it does. You will probably need to source a new housing.

Was this supposed to be http://youtube/vbbT4U5_gb8 ? I can't check from work, so don't know if I fixed it

Thanks. I'm posting from my phone so the 'video' option isn't available like it is on the full site.

There's only one proper MT.net answer on what to do now: Weld WG shut and run ALLOFIT!

Been calling around and no one sells just the wastegate flapper housing (not sure of the technical name of it.) It's an eBay turbo anyways (godspeed) so i don't even think it's worth the money and effort to fix it. Looks like a new turbo is in my future.

Or weld it up and go to an external wastegate.

Wouldn't I need a new manifold if I went that route?

Or have a hole drilled and a flange welded onto your prexisting one.

Ended up just ordering a new turbo. The company from which I bought the turbo had awful customer service, and they wouldn't let me purchase just the wastage flapper housing.

Should make a nice center piece for the living room table.

Dude are you kidding me? You can get new and used turbine housings all over the net. If you would have posted a wtb i doubt you would paid more than $50 for a used turbine housing

Well I got it from a friend's shop for $100 with the discount he gave me, so it just wasn't worth it for me to try to get a new housing etc.
