This is interesting... my stock waste gates are definitely hurting, was looking into new turbos but this would solve the problem without causing total turbo swap needs.

Nice find!

I thought the issue was the bushing pivot of the turbocharger, not the actual actuator rod.

royallecaf is right, fail point is the bushing pivot and pin, changing the actuator will not fix anything.

Testing was done a few years back on the Forge actuators and it was found that they performed worse than the oem ones in terms of response and resolution.
