    Sounds like your wastegate is opening before it's supposed to. Check the hoses.

    Well, the first time I did the wastegate turn mod.....I DID take the entire wastegate actuator and arm assembly off the turbo and did the mod in a vice grip. Then I put it back on and reconnected the hose (correctly I thought)

    I don't know why the "pill" wouldn't be in the T-hose thing. I've never used an EBC or MBC, so I've not had a reason to fool w/ those hoses any.

    It would be great if someone could provide an up-close/detailed pic of that section so I can compare it to mine; see if hoses are f'd up or connected wrong or whatever. Thanks!!

    The "brass restrictor" is the little pill in the compressor side hose. Take off the hose and look inside for it.

    Will do. Thought I'd post a few more up-close pics of my hoses just in case someone can spot something that's wrong. Thanks everyone for the help!

    The pill should be in the green side, not the red side.

    Try putting the hoses all the way on. The following aren't pushed all the way on:
    1) Hoses attatched to coupling
    2) Hose attatched to turbo
    3) Hose attatched to BOV
    There may be a leak coming from one of these.

    Question on checking for restrictor...

    I've been wondering if my hoses are connected correctly and if that little in-line restrictor thing is on correctly, also.

    I will check in the morning, but I thought I'd post an illustrated queston about it. Here it is:
