Yay! Good work. An easier job than you feared then. It's probably a good idea to get an uprated wastegate actuator. I hear good things about the Trent actuator. Don't get the FMAC900 from Forge though - it's for the NG900. When I bought one, Forge said it was for all 900s and when I rang back informing them it didn't fit, they said they don't make an FMAC900, despite it being on their website. Grrr. Once I'm refunded, I'm getting a Trent actuator and disabling the fuel over-pressure switch, which seems to want to cut in at lower pressures than usual on uphill runs. I'm "putting up" with about 8 PSI at the moment and want my boost spikes back :) Paul
