Shitballs. That started happening like days after I got that voodoo II kit installed. What does it entail to fix the stupid thing?

Wire the damn thing closed and see if the noise goes away. If it does you wastegate actuator sucks ***** and isn't working. Replace the actuator. If the noise persists, take your turbo off the manifold and have a look.

if you can move the wastegate at all when its attached to the actuator/spring, then your **** is fucked and I don't see how its making any boost.

Eh whatever. I'll see where I am when the new actuator gets here. Regardless the ***** fucked in one way or another, actuator side or flapper valve side.
