    Put it in the downpipe , up stream if the lambda. Then you need to get the threshold lowered for egt. Failing that just fit the -022 and get the egt deleted.

    It's rare that we disagree Dan, but in this case, I'd suggest Darren isn't going to follow through with either of your suggestions as they sound like effort.

    I'd suggest he just gets the right part rather than attempting to bodge it.....

    Cool cool, as long as you have the EGT protection threshold lowered in the map all should be well, I believe it's expected to be around 100 degrees lower in the downpipe than the OE pre turbine location.

    I've tack welded sleeve already bill and ported hole out but I've had it side by side with genuine and the waste gate arm is smaller than original in length on the arm itself is welde incorrect position too open gate!! So I have got too either buy 1 bar actuator ie forge ect as I will not have enough travel and preload if you understand if I give actuator full travel I have 0.2/3 preload which is low too low just have no faith in it bill!!!
