What kind of issues were there? Considering buying the kit and would like to know about potential issues.
Okay I figure some details are probably okay from a customer standpoint. And as a customer, I just didn't and don't want to get in the middle of a he said/she said.. I just want the turbo to work. I also want to share my experience so others here do not have similar issues.
The wastegate would not pass the adaptation no matter what the shop did. They found that the wastegate lever on the turbo was welded in the wrong clocking position causing the rod to be too short. Apparently there is an extension kit - not sure if it would have applied in this situation, but it wasn't used. No new turbo was shipped. The shop was able to work around the issue.
Keep in mind that by no means am I very technically inclined on the inner-workings of the turbo and wastegate/actuator system.
Question. Does this turbo not whoosh at all compared to the IS20 when you let off the gas? Is it the anti-surge housing that causes this?
