Is it normal for the waste gate valve to not seal up the valve seat 100% I have a turbo smart 45 hyper gate and after inspecting it i noticed that the valve doesn't completely close the opening, there is roughly an 1/8 inch gap. Heres a photo to clarify.

There should be an insert that goes into the wastegate to fill that gap.
The insert is called a fire ring. If you don't have it installed you will not build any boost

Thanks for the help guys! Especially Scott for the link, I had the valve seat but it was on the blow off valve v band. I guess the previous owner boxed it up with it like that. I installed it and it slipped into the waste gate perfectly sealing the valve seat.
Reps to everyone
