Thanks for your prompt response.  Would you consider a suggestion?  Have a
batch made.  There are more than a few of us out there that have modified,
increased boost TQCs with 100k or more miles.  I'm sure there are more than
a few people that have torn or cracked diaphragms.  If the price is right,
I'm sure you'd sell all that you had made.  If you don't want to be in the
diaphragm business, can you give me the name and address of the firm in
England who made the batch you had?  I'll pole the list, QCUSA, and the
regional groups then and surely come up with enough to commision a batch on
my own.

Back to the basics.  Are the wastegate diaphragms from the TQC and the early
5000 turbos the same?

Thanks for your help.
