i've been having boost spikes lately. really wierd though. 1 pull and i won't go over 6psi, which is what i have my bc set to. then the next pull, as soon as i am gaining boost it will spike to like 12psi. so today i went under the car and looked at the nipples coming off the wastegate because i've checked all the IC pipes and everything else. i was going to take them out and re-teflon them in case that was causing the problem.

i looked close at the nipple coming off the side of the wastegate and there was a hairline crack going down the side of it :(

i took the wastegate right off and it broke at the crack

so now i just hope this thing is still under warranty. i bought it less than a year ago so i'm hoping so

it's the HKS 40mm wastegate. the aluminum isn't very strong on it :(

ahh that sucks, how long have you had the wastegate for? HKS wastegates arent that fragile from what you're saying.

Did you buy the wastegate from a distributor or directly from HKS?

well i don't really blame the manufacturer, it's HKS.

and i definately don't blame the distributor. i think it's just kind of a fluke thing

i just want to get it fixed soon because i'm about to be installing my AEM. sent my injectors to AEM early last week to get them flow tested.

I sent them my Precision 525cc injectors so now in future software releases, you will be able to select those in the wizard. so if anyone is going to be running these in an AEM, i can hook you up with the battery offset so you don't have to send them in and wait to get them back :)
