Re: Rebuilt Head, No Oil Flowing

Just looked over my rocker assembly. You referring to key/tabbed pedestal was throwing me off. The front pedestal has an overflow/return passage that lets oil back out of the rocker shaft. All other pedestals are the same, with a slightly squared off hole. I'd say the sealant on the driver's side r...

You will almost 100% get boost creep. You have 4 of the 6 cylinders rushing past the turbo port which inturn is going to keep giving the turbo exhaust pressure.

Re: Wastegate Location

One would think that the bottom could disrupt flow smooth flow to the turbine, But it is the preferred location for '' waste gate priority'' placement to prevent boost creep...If the bottom gives you easy oil drain and other piping, I would go with it.
Any members have any other thoughts on this ?
