Yeah. Tial fixed the wastegate with no questions asked. I showed up at their facility and they let me wait in their lobby. They sent me on my way this 2 stickers and fixed wastegate. I not sure it made a huge difference. Leaks... Yeah I have a few of those. I've had a new CFM tstat housing installed. It doesn't leak coolant anymore. Although the system isn't getting pressurized. Weird. As for the "oil leak"/ "oil all over my engine bay", the dipstick tube is the culprit. The valve cover gasket is also leaking. Hopefully that will be fixed this week.
After all that...it will still be slow.

You need a clutch that can grab at 7-8k at 300 whp. Yours doesn't seem like it can

Just cuz it's rated doesn't mean it can grip or engage. I thought you had trouble engaging gears when you drove or it wouldn't go into gear at high rpm?

That didn't have anything to do with the clutch. I couldn't get into second at 7400 i bet the engine torquing had more to do with it.

not sure on the Tq but its a F22B2 motor in his accord with Wiseco pistons in it. stock cam, 3in exhaust from turbo and tuned by Speed Industry's. Before he took it apart this winter he was pulling around 15psi. but the turbo had low range Rpm and lost psi near top end till now.

I mean the engine twisted in the mounts making it impossible to get into second gear.
