The turbo is on and spooling and running fine with zero leaks. This is actually the first time my car has not had exhaust leaking from somewhere.
The bad news is the wastegate spring is only 6psi instead of 8psi, so it wasn't a very exciting drive. The tune is overly rich since dropping from 11psi to 6psi, but I'll touch that up a bit until I get a new spring or boost controller. More pics to follow.

Next project is the house, not the car so it will be some time before I get back to it.
