I welded in a threaded nut coupler to extend the T3 arm I used on a past project.
Thanks! :)
It was cheap and easy to make
$3 for the 1/4" turnbuckle from Ace hardware plus $.11 for a 1/4" nut to lock it.
Cut/weld/clamp done!
Keeping the small pieces aligned in the vice was the only pain, but that's it.

Here's my thread with more pics: DIY: Adjustable wastegate actuator
