Oil filter was on. I did remove the intake manifold support bracket last time I changed the oil so there was a little extra room.

Yeah. I'd call the bracket a bit of over-engineering on Mazda's part. Tons of people on here removed theirs or never even had one to begin with.

Mine did too. I put a Turbo Tony down pipe on and it helped SO much. You really need to upgrade your DP, one of the best mods ever.

I can't wait to feel it with the timing put back to stock. Good luck on the rest of your build.

You tighten the wastegate rod until the flapper is snug and doesn't rattle. In new Greddy kits, it comes adjusted too loose and rattles. You should only tighten it more than that if you have upgraded your fueling system so you can supply enough fuel for the extra boost.
