^ Really?

I personally dont see the point considering that my car is in the middle of a parking lot in the pitch black of nothingness. So, I would rather wait a few hours and make my life worlds easier. Thats just me though, to each his own.

Not really, I just dont appreciate being called things. Anyways, Sorry for being disrespectful. I figured out what the problem is, The actuator was too tight and wasnt allowing the WG to open all of the way. I do believe that it is in fact hitting the DP but Im going to drive the car and see if it boosts.

It was infact opening all of the way by hand, almost a perfect 90* But, we took the turbo off and took a look at everything. With the WG opened 45* which is what the actuator allows movement wise, the port was more than open completely. The closest part of the WG to the port was at an eyeballs glance, about 1 cm away. Sooo, Dont know whether that would make a difference or not, or whether I just need to get the WG ported.
