well i don't have much experience but from what i remember back in my class at wyotech that plugging the wastegate isn't too great of an idea because that will cause the turbo to overspin..........if i'm wrong i apologizeopcorn:opcorn: of course tho i do plan on spending the money for an adjustable boost elbow for my 01:lol3:I'm going through my options. The cheapest means of getting my boost up (I'm only hitting 20-22psi after all my work) is to simply install a 1/8 NPT plug on the compressor side of the turbo. Anyone else doing this?
If plugging the wastegate is a viable option, I've got a better idea than the boost elbow or plug. A "controllable" plug if you will. I could also refine it a little bit with a "safety" now that I think about it.
Guess I just need to know if plugging the wastegate line is a good idea.
I'd like to be able to have a switchable mode of stock wastegating and a full on mode for the turbo.
I realize they make turbo boost controllers, but in this instance we really don't need anything that advanced I believe.
