the studs were not threaded all the way. i did check them for tightness i also sprayed card cleaner all the way around the mating surface checking for a vacuum leak. (didnt find one) I made a gasket out of gasket material. it always seems under powered as when i go WOT i can only get 3 psi of boost and then when i shift gears it doesnt seem like i have any bottom end power. I checked the bypass valve with a vacuum pump and it was opening so i think it is good but i dont know.
