[200q20v] lower wastegate hose?

Sounds like your wastegate is opening too soon.  Did you get an upgraded
spring with the ECU upgrade?  If not (and I believe you should have), you
can use a screw to remove the tamper cap covering the adjustment allen bolt
on the wastegate.  Then you'll have to tap on that allen screw (since it's
loktited in) so it will break loose.  Then you can adjust the spring
pressure by turning the screw down.  Try half turns to start.

But before you do that, make sure you all your hoses are secure.  Loud
spinning noise?  That concerns me.  Mine only got noisy when my lower turbo
to intercooler hose split.  Lots of noise, but little boost.
