I have not followd you all the way -
Have you checked hose-fittings and IC endcaps with
airpressure on the system?
High pressure released under an untight wormgear
at 1.6 Bar and then building up again ...
With an anologous boost meter you would like'ly se some flutter when this happen.
You need the meter anyhow so install it before you spoil your rotor.
