Thanks, Boe! Hear that PLOP? That's the sound of me correcting a cranio-rectal inversion (head popping out of my anus). Of course you are right. The idea in the boost elbow is to REDUCE the pressure going to the wastegate.

Oh well, mine worked fine with the wastegate totally disabled. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it!

Bill, help me out here, Brother!

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.

Bill
