    after thinking my turbo was goosed, we think we've found *part* of the problem.

    The turbo is definately still working (at least it seems that way). There's definately turbo kick, but it doesn't really come into play until about 4-5k.

    the actuator rod seemed seized for whatever reason, we've freed it up, but the rod might actually be slightly bent inside the wastegate itself - won't know until i get the turbo off.

    i've already changed the maf sensor before i was even getting any boost.

    before i get the turbo taken off, is there anything else that could be causing it to not boost until around 4-5k?

    cheers
