Question TurboMaster Wastegate Controller Install

So, I figured it would be a fairly easy job- getting the old one out was a sinch. Installing the TurboMaster wasnt too terrible until I tried to install the E Clip... I gave up lol. I dont see that bracket coming off but it sucks I couldnt get the supplied E clip on.
Does anyone know of any other type of clip that would be easier to get on? That is fkn redic. I build custom hot rods for a living and all sorts of custom parts cnc machine fab etc- I was beside myself but its getting late and I have to go to bed gotta wake up early for work...

Re: TurboMaster Wastegate Controller Install

Pull turbo. Install wastegate. Reinstall turbo. Drive away.

Why would you dick around on top of the cowl for hours when you can have the turbo out in 15 minutes?

Re: TurboMaster Wastegate Controller Install

it took me about a half hour to take the old one off and put the new one on... Accept for the clip. Either way Im asking for help. It would take me about a hour to deal w the turbo. I need a E clip w the tang on top for easy installation. Cannot find.
