    sounds like someone has an experience to share?

    neither the forge nor the ATP is as good as OEM, but as stated, the prices are ludicrious.
    titanium #129 - sold.

    The stock WGA is a piece of crap, mine went bad at 30k miles. I now have 40k on my forge wga and it is still working like a charm

    Nothing oem is worth the money. Their replacement turbo manifold is over $1000 for a cheap shit casting. BTW you are always better off spending money on tools rather than mechanics. Buy the tools and learn how to do stuff yourself because it isnt that hard.

    Well I just finished the ATP WGA install.I still have my idle issues. Gonna go get some vacuum hoses to see how that goes. I dunno if the new WGA is bad or what. Peaks at 9-10psi and settles at 6psi..feels stronger though.

    any fuel cut after replacing the WGA? did you get the forge WGA? it has different selection of springs that may alter your spike

    I am currently thinking about purchasing the ATP wastegate for my 2003 MSP and plan on doing the replacement myself. Are there any detailed pictures/descriptions I can use to make this as easy as possible? After reading the How-To already posted, I am still nervous about doing it since I have minimal experience. Thanks for help!

    Just be careful not to lose the c clip. It's tiny, hard to see when you drop it. Which I have a few times..

    Thank you sir! Just trying to get familiar with what actually needs to be done to remove the wastegate actuator as well as replacing it (besides removing the necessary parts to reach it).

    I found it easier to just remove the turbo/manifold as an assembly.
