I recently plugged my wastegate on my 99 cummins. All i did was pull off the hose connecting the actuator to the turbo, plugged up the hole in the turbo and thats all i did. I heard it would increase some horses. but i don't feel any increase? and my turbo whines instead of whistles if you know what i'm describing. Is there anything wrong with that? And i want to get my truck to blow some black without adding anything because i'm low on money... how could i do that with a simple toolkit?

unless you ahve more fuel, that extra air won't help you any.
you should be getting some smoke with those injectors anyway along with the ez. my ez on stock injectors laid a nice little puff in 3rd and 4th gear.
but if you want smoke, you need fuel. get a used fueling box. i got my bluechip box used for $125 and it smokes like a train if i want it to.

what is your boost? by plugging off the waste gate all you accomplish is a little more boost. if you have the fuel to make it, which will in turn decrease your smoke.

i would get a $10 adjustable boost elbow and put that in instead of plugging it off.

now for more smoke, there isn't alot you can do beside bigger injectors, or a more powerful box/ or programmer.

maybe so a smoke switch???? just search smoke switch, you will find a billion threads on it
