The T3 has a rubber hose going from the compressor housing to the wastegate actuator, the K26 has a metal line going to the wastegate.

so the metal line with the banjo bolt is a wastegate line or is it an oil feed line, im trying to figure out if the hose is even hooked up or on the car because that could be part of my problems

thanks for the pic, yes that is what it looks like, is the bigger pipe the wastegate pipe? or is there still a rubber hose that is suposed to be somwhere? if it is one of those pipes can i somhow clean it out or inspect it ? most of the time i look too the car is hot and been running for a while, is it easier to see from the top or from underneith the car?

No, it's the smaller metal line on the bottom.

ok so its the small line with the banjo fitting on there? is there a way i can clean it out or would i even benefit from a cleaning? just to make it clear then on my 603 motor there is no rubber hose for the wastegate just the metal thing, and if there is a cleaning process please do tell me how it can be done, my car has almost 300k on it and i want to get it running like it should be running again, thanks
