Please help

I own a 180sx and for some reason my wastegate isn't opening. My turbo is spooling and the wastegate Isn't jammed. Any information would be greatly appreciated

thanks

your post is really vauge but I will try to give some helpful advice

1. If you are running an EBC make sure it is set to Actuator (if your turbo is internally wastegated)

2. Ensure that the actuator arm is not rubbing on something (I had this problem with my AC lines)

3. Ensure that the arm is propperly attached to the turbine housing

All this is assuming that you are running an internally WG'd turbo
