wastegate noise?

ok so i am getting this fart noise coming from my car after disabling the bov and some other adjustements. i was told it was the wastegate by both my local mech and subaru and that it was normal. i will soon be getting the stock bpv on and was also told by subaru that this would not fix the problem since they say its the wastegate. the noise comes on when the bov would normally vent. just wondering if anyone else has this.

my mech said "disabled" but it think that my hks bov has a feature that makes it recuirculate. which is what think he did. i believe he also he adjusted the wastegate saying that there was a problem where something was frozen. its just a temporary solution until i get the stock bpv this week. the car runs great amd the lag is fixed i just get this sound, and it sucks.

Disassemble the BOV?
Here's a good process used by another helpful member...
Step one- unbolt the BOV and remove
Step two- walk over to the trash can
Step three- put BOV in the garbage

Problem solved

Enable you BOV...that's compressor surge and that will damage your turbo

ok i found vid with the sound i got, Subaru 02 STI EWG Flutter (HD)

the sound is at like 13 seconds into the clip. the car runs much better with the bov "disabled" i get all sorts of lag with it on. but like i said it is a temporary solution until i get the stocker on.
