Default Wastegate solution for sr20 turbo

So for a couple years i've been using a sr20 turbo. When I first turboed my car I couldn't find an effective way to mount the wastegate. I ended up being very ghetto and used JBweld. Surprisingly it has worked almost flawlessly for 2 years (it cracked once). Fast forward to present day, I've built my motor and wanted to mount my wastegate properly.

Here are the parts i used.
Rod extension kit for Internal wastegates : atpturbo.com
Wastegate Actuator with ROD END, 28RS style, 14 PSI : atpturbo.com
Garrett Adjustable Wastegate Bracket : atpturbo.com

I had to cut the bracket to make space for the oil feed and drill at tap the compressor housing. Now I have it mounted and it almost looks like it was always supposed to be there.

Just thought I'd post my solution, just in case others were having issues.

I think this post deserves your first cat.

Saw this post and picked up the same bracket to redo my SR20 wastegate setup as well. Thanks for the heads up.
