The whole point is to loss pressure causing waste gate to stay shut. My thoughts
What I was basically trying to say is the boost elbow didnít work for me. I was trying for was a small gain over the 23 psi I already had, to see if my EGT would drop. Van (op) had already seen his turbo, same as mine, produce a little over 30 psi with actuator disabled, so I used 35 psi in my test to see if I could use the elbow to regulate the pressure. I could not, it bled off to much pressure to the actuator. This is great if you want maximum boost from your turbo, which I didnít. So if I wanted maximum boost, I could have disconnected the line from the turbo and plugged it as Van originally posted.
Good luck with your modification, and keep us posted on what you did. Give us before and after boost and EGT readings.
