    How often can wastegate flutter occur?

    Hey everyone, I just put a TBE upipe and the Cobb AP stage 2 on, and the wategate fullter is starting to occur more and more. It used to just occur when the car when into boost for the first time after it had warmed up and now it is starting to do it even after that. So is this a problem or nothing to worry about? Thanks!

    you are hearing the wastgate going through its duty cycle, wrap your downpipe to make it quieter. Or tighten your wastegate arm and reset your ecu, that might make it go away entirely like it did on mine and boost response is better.

    I just don't get this drifting thing, why would I spend money to put a car in the wall for a bunch of stupid 16 year olds with dreams of fast and Furious?

    Wraping the down pipe really does help a ton with the noise.
