I looked at the diaphragm and it was aok. The valve shaft was kind of sooted up but I lubed it up and it is fine.
What did u lube it with and why?
Its not a blow off valve, this thing gets insanely hot. So unless u used some special lube that isn't affected by any temperature then that lube will just turn into an even bigger layer of soot

Please let us know what shop doesn't even know how to install a Tial wastegate. Do they use monkeys to assemble stuff? Holy stupid techs.

Where is your build thread?
I haven't updated it at m.net in a while. I redid the exhaust with v-bands, pulled the ******* dash out again to rewire some ****, and am installing the Dakota Digital speedo converter box because my speedo is whacked out. I'll be doing that tomorrow and the car will at least ride around the block.

I still need to order and install a new FM/V8R oil pan as my modded f-body pan is leaking at a weld. I'll updated the **** if I'm not too lazy to take new pics/vid.
