Hey guys during my second autocross event I started hearing an exhaust leak. However this one's a bit tricky. It seems that it only comes out when the car is pushed hard and goes away on a cold start.
I went under the car this morning and felt air escaping from the tial external waste gate along with the obvious exhaust noise.
Any hints that could guide me when I pull the tial external wastegate out tomorrow? Again, here are the symptoms that I have found.
Problem: leak from wastegate (felt air comming out of dump tube)
- Comes in when car is warm or pushed hard.
- Goes away during a cold start
- Leak occurs during idle (after warm)
- I'm still hitting boost but I won't be able to log boost until tommorow.
mods would probably be helpfull...

Any leads would be helpfull. Thank you in advance if I don't get a chance to thank you guys
