Sts turbo issue again, wastegate this time.

So I started my car drove somewhere and out of no where when I parked the wastegate sounded like exhaust was getting past it at IDLE. It's never made this sound at idle before. When I drove it I didn't drive it hard.

Any idea why this is happening to this crappy sts kit.

Yea I got it in 2011 when there want really any FI kits available so I said screw it, but to be honest with all these upgrades I had to do. Basically spend another 2 grand for upgrades and fixing issues the kit is finally running better. KNOCK ON WOOD!!!! Lmao

STS has had issues for years. I had a STS kit on my 02 SS and i had to upgrade everything to the point the only thing that wasnt replaced was the intake tube. Good luck with getting it situated and if you ever have any questions feel free to PM me as i have probabaly experienced any issue you may experience.
