Car stopped on the track... fuel pump issues?

My car stopped suddenly on the track after a tight uphill left corner. I was sure I had blown the engine, but it turns out it was just the fuel pump.

Wastegate noise at idle?

Should you be able to hear just a tiny bit of exhaust noise from an external wastegate with a dump pipe at idle?

Or does this mean there's a leak?

I took enough of it off with 45 grit paper that it finally feels smooth (after some 80 and 320 grit sanding), although I suspect the feathered edges might still peel off at some point.

I wonder if...

How do you keep it from understeering with such a big wing compared to the relatively tame front aero?

There's absolutely positively no way I'm going to be able to get surface flat without using a power tool.

180 grit sandpaper is not going to cut it.

Should I just putty this thing first?

A 20 PSI difference between the rotors alone probably warrants a rebuild, even if the engine isn't "blown." You might be able to reuse all the original rotors and housing if you are lucky.

Don't ask me. But I assume unplugging the ABS CPU, which has a GIANT connector, probably affected a bunch of other circuits.

It's a 96 JDM car, which makes it a 4th-gen (chuuki) FD.
