try blocking it off and go for a drive. watch you boost gauge carefully and see what it will get up to. Then if it does go above 43 ajust the waste gate to open where you want it.
If possible moniter your intake air temps and turbine drive pressure. Make sure your not defeting the purpose. More boost does not always mean more HP.Iv got a quick question. With the few things in my sig Im getting around 43 PSI of boost. Do you think I could get moore by adjusting my wast gate or blocking it off? Or do I just need more fuel?:confused013: I would like to get it to around the 45-47 PSI range. What are your thoughts? TIA
I have an extra port for drive preshur in my header. Im hoping to check it soon:thumbsup:If possible moniter your intake air temps and turbine drive pressure. Make sure your not defeting the purpose. More boost does not always mean more HP.
With my new header I really have to try to get my EGT's up to & past 1300-1350* Smoke:confused013: I have only really pushed it at night since the new header but it used to clean up pretty good @ the higher boost range.:ditto: but a pretty good way to estimate if you don't have those gauges is what are your egt's doing at 43 psi? are they raging 1400 degrees or are they pretty cool with not much if any smoke at all? No smoke = good efficiency, crank up the wastegate and see what happens.
Nope thats why I want to keep it below 50 PSI but still want to up in a little bit. Another 2-5 PSI I think should be ok. But who knows I could be wrong.you have studs and rings yet?
We will see. I know plenty of people running around 45-47 PSI on the stock head gasket with no problems but who knows I guess Ill find out sooner or later:confused013:say good bye to your head gasket.
Look in the sig Im running a Garrett GT3788R BB turboif you running ur stock hx35 charger id keep it where your at untill u upgrade it..anything over 37 - 38 psi is just wasted boost.. and that head gasket will not like it at all.
I see you have the same turbo as me. What kind of boost are you running?Try tying the wastegate line to the intake elbow, i mean, that is where you are reading the boost right? You are probably loosing a few lbs. across the intercooler. That is what I did on dads pickup.
where I changed the fitting for appearance sake on the elbow.
Ok sounds good man let me know & thanks:thumbsup:Ill let you know once the trans in is. On the stock slipping trans it was a puny 32lbs. Should be 45ish when back together, oh and nice header.
