You can get very high egt's, if not careful. If you have an egt gauge, and you keep it below 1350*, you'll be OK.
Gauges are important before any mods.

I would think that you could blow a head gasket.

I dont know what u mean by disabling it but u can plug it. If u want to there a little rubber hose that goes from ur wastgate to the turbo. You take the hose off the turbo not the wastgate. There will be a little elbow u just take it off that. Leave the hose attached to the wastgate. Take a bolt (not sure wat size youll just have to play around with it) and stick it in the end of the hose make sure the bolt is real tight then take a hose clamp and clamp it around the bolt so it wont blow out and for a little more insurance. I havent done it to mine yet but i would take the elbow out and put a pipe plug or somthing like that in it and youll be set u dont have to do that but im going to whenever i get time. I almost make around 50Lbs of boost all i have is an ICEBOX, 100hp injectors, and an edge comp. you arnt gonna gain alot of boost but a little bit enough to be noticable. I learned this from a friend that went to diesel school so im sure its okay cause he knows what hes talkin about.
I would recommend gauges though u dont have to it helps to know what going on. I dont know how high ur egts will go but I know the other day i put my foot in it and didnt look at the egt gauge and it read 1500. But i left my foot in it for a long time.

DO IT YOULL LOVE THAT LITTLE EXTRA BOOST!!

DO NOT DO THIS I did it lowered my EGT's and gave me more power but in the end i ate 5 turbos in like 4 months. You will overspin the HX35 and the shaft will break, trust me i went through 4 of them. If you want to do anything splice a T fitting into the wastegate line so the wastegate wont open all the way. I have a 24Valve turbo and it has a different wastegate setup no line from the injection pump for it. I see 30lbs of boost and thats a safe place for stock head bolts.

At that psi you are fine. When I blocked mine I could get almost 50psi out of the poor little guy. Funny thing is it didnt pop until I put the 40 on then bye bye headgasket.

I was pushin 42 out of the stock turbo, I have 4.10 gears and it seemed like if I was rippin a little bit and i let off the compressor side would try and stop and would spin the shaft right off at the journal bearing on the exhaust side. I talked to shied diesel and they said that was the only thing they could think of. My buddy who owns a shop has disabled alot of wastegates on his customers trucks and I was the only 1 that had serious turbo problems, some guys did pop headgaskets or stretch the stock head bolts. Finally i put an HX35w off of an 01 on it and left the wastegate hooked up and no more problems. I blew 3 HX35W's and 1 H1C with a 18 housing.

Yeah, every situation seems different, however, the one thing that is UNDENIEABLE by anyone is the necessity for guages. If you stay under 35PSI with a stock turbo, all should be fine.

I have an 02 thats the difference. But the guy that owned it before me did it and he had it plugged for over 40000 miles and never had any problems. I love it.
