I commend your efforts for WG rattle. Lots of work for sure.
Yeah, tried that. It's at an angle that didn't allow me to pick it off with my long mechanics pick.

Thanks, Debbie Downer. I checked the shaft that goes into the turbos, and there was a little play but not severe. The actuators were fine. If it sticks, I have an aftermarket warranty until 100k miles anyway, and after that, this car will be a dedicated track/race car at that point anyway. Single turbo time at that point!

Greatest thing is that there is NO rattle anymore except when the system closes fully to produce boost - throttle tip in. You can only hear it with the windows down driving next to parked cars/walls/etc, and it's only for a split second. No more "clatter-clatter-clatter" when lifting the throttle just driving around parking lots and garages.
