I've heard of some guys in my area blocking off they're wastegate to buil boost. Is this a good idea?
Thanks for the reply, the one I have seen was just an elbow that had been plugged up. Should I plug the hole or run the adjustable elbow?Your stock turbo is a HX-35, its good for about 30-35lbs of boost, anything after that is pretty much hot air and not doing any good. So if you already hit 30-35 dont worry about it, but if your hitting 20 or so and you have enough fuel you can partialy block wg with a boost elbow. But if your not pushing enough fuel you could weld the wast gate shut and it wouldn't make 30-35, but the HX-35 doens't really need a lot of fuel to spool, just trying to make it a little more understandable.
