anyone have comments on this???

i thought iPd changed the boost psi thru the ecu???

im thinkin of doing it, if its worth the while...but since its gettin colder in LA, and im already getting crappy mileage...would this make things worse???

oh and BTW, any difference in the sound of acceleration???

Re: Question on Wastegate adjustment (GShyneDM)

Adjusting the wastegate should take away a little of the lag, but ultimately the ECU controls the boost unless you get a MBC and set the boost yourself.

Re: Question on Wastegate adjustment (GShyneDM)

Yeah, I have 3 full turns on mine. The car pulls a little better during a dead stop but that's pretty much it. The lag is still there but that's what you get for having a turbo. I don't know how it's going to handle in the cold, I doubt it should change.

Oh yeah, I polished my heat shield while it was off too. All nice and shiny now! http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif
