Hustler, my vac line going to my wastegate is 1/8" or maybe even smaller... FM told me to check the opening psi on the actuator and to make sure the wastegate is opening all of the way... Duh... Then they said if that doesn't fix it to port the wastegate.
Comments were directed at dopple, who lately likes to post after me to tell me I'm wrong.

I have a resonator in the midpipe (to look like a cat conv), softer angles, and dual exits each with their own muffler. It's pretty low restriction.
