    There are two other alternate things that can be done here & so I will just describe them.



    One could weld a plate within the down-pipe to install a spring with guide bolt to hold the WG closed tighter and contained within it or drill a hole in down-pipe and weld a sleeve on it, then install a guide rod, so an external adjustable spring could be installed in same location aforementioned but can be dialed in easier from outside the down-pipe.


    Please tell me this stuff makes sense?

    There are many ways to make things work or do a repair but none of these are "qualified repairs" & should be considered for off road use only.

    or

    One could remove the air motor bolts and install a plate with an adjustable pull setting & to make the WG motor be pulled more tight and then just refastened solving the same problem for tension loss.

    Please tell me this stuff makes sense?

    People do realize this was done by design to make it anti tuned to a degree right?

    I would like to further point out that the later TSI turbo's allow for a tilt in place to access the WG arm from above.

    This means you remove the upper exhaust bolts in car and down-pipe flange etc and tilt turbo back to access a repair of the WG air motor.

    Jack, just curious: did you think that the amount of wastegate value play shown in the video is a significant issue? Or is that acceptable and the real problem typically the wastegate actuator?

    Thanks,

    Ben

    Well if exhaust isn't leaking out of it and I have not seen one yet that couldn't be fixed unless the turbo was just plain bad from oil seals/impeller or MOD over boost damage FOD.

    My opinion from statistics I have seen and reports back that I saved people a ton of money & they didn't have in letters emails and treats that I love, but certainly don't need showing here .

    I am right and the play is fine in bushing & as long as the hole seals and the spring is to correct hold tension.

    Now the guy selling the turbos isn't going to like this thread, but fuck em......

    Plenty of real money to be made on real repairs & that need to be done elsewhere right and the humble dude had his heart in the right place in video, just his brain was elsewhere that day?

    I would like to make it very clear, that people should not call the facility to discuss or chat me up or without written approval on the clock, I am not endorsing a product here, nor am I selling this and if you have a question out of curiosity use the forum or respective thread with aid of RTFB.

    If you are a shop in Portland Oregon , you should already know what you are doing. 503-544-18XX
