  3. did remove my wastegate "kinugawa" and the arm can be moved alot up and down, did blow in to it with the compressor and air comes out at the hole where the arm comes out .. so my membrane is broken ... well done kinugawa ... broke after 1000 km :/
  4. Havent updated here for a while ^^ I have converted my headlights with lenses before and after Also made installation guide on youtube, its in swedish but maby you get some tip here anyhow and the nexus 7 in dash is going slow.. but its fully working Have been organizing my garage Have been strugeling with my boost on my car, did get a new kinugawa wastegate but now my boost comes at 3-3500 rpm and just keep going up to 1.5 bar ~ 21,8 psi ( i shall get MAX 1.3 bar) dont understand why i get slow boost and to high boost :S Normal is early boost and to high or to slow and low boost...... dont know what to do :/
