That seems to be the weak point in the stock design in addition to the wastegate arm issue.
These retain the stock cartridge, so we'll see how they do. My car is essentially the guinea pig.. if things need to change they will, fear not!

retaining the stock cartridge does keep costs way down though... which was important to me. I'm not looking to make 9000whp, i just wanted a nice bump in power. If all goes well EPL was talking going with a big single turbo route eventually... but things start here first
