Exclamation How to adjust your wastegate arm

this action is done when you are useing stage 2+ and not reaching your target boost only
DO NOT ADJUST WHILE STOCK OR STAGE 1( it is not needed)


1: Remove C-CLIP from the WG Actuator DO NOT DROP THE C-CLIP
2: Loosen the WG Adjuster nut with 10mm wrench
3: Remove the Adjuster from the WG Flapper by pulling up.
4: Shorten the length of the arm to increase boost, opposite to decrease.
5: Place Adjuster back onto the WG Flapper.
6: Place C-CLIP back onto the locker.
7: Tighten 10mm Adjuster nut to when done

turn only half a turn at a time then check boost

DO NOT ADJUST UNTIL YOU HAVE PROPER EM AND AN ACCURATE WAY TO MONITOR YOUR BOOST!!!!

You rock !! It's a good idea to have a couple of spare c-clips handy if you have clumsy big hands like me. I tend to drop or break them.

Or have someone do it for you so as to have no accountability whatsoever!

In fact, then you can blame their fat skinny klutzy mechanic fingers!

I agree. This should be a sticky also. Out of curiousity, what would happen if I turn up the boost on stage 1 with only a non catted DP?
