Can anyone provide me a link to the instruction to adjusting the wastegate? I remember seeing it somewhere but I can't find it anymore. Also, how many turns have people put on their wastegates? Thanks.

I put 3 full turns on mine. As stock, it dumped at 1.5 psig. It required 4 full turns to get it to the 6 psig setting often kicked about, but I rolled it back to 3 turns to feel a little safer.

I did also 3 turns on mine and it made a nice difference.. I think 3 turns is a good amount for all the cars
