pretty much just like it says.

got my car running last weekend, took it for a drive today, and under load in 2nd gear and higher there is like a clicking/popping noise which sounds like it is coming from the turbo or the surrounding area.

we still need to dial in the timing perfect, i dont know if that would play a huge part in that.

my friends car is doing the same thing but not as bad.
