i would swap injectors, set timing at 10*, and unhook the wastegate arm. oh ya, taking it out for a 15 minute or so spirited drive can help too becauese it heats everything up nicely.

failed ok well i passed the visual the tech didnt even ask a question about the turbo system. i failed the sniffer my no bnumbers were to high. from what i have read that means running too lean. so im gunna reset my timing to 8* and run it hard for a while to get the cat warm then go back for my free retest.
