yeah, internal wgs suck if you can't handle the stock setting. i found this out the hard way with my dsm 14b. i let off at 10psi, i'm sure it would pull more. i'd rather have an external with a lower spring and a boost controller...

some people say you can bend the arm or cut it and thread the ends with an adjustable coupler in the middle, but honestly, i've never seen someone do it. i think www.gnttype.org or .com has some info on that mod...

how much boost is the tiny little thing set at stock, 7psi? you should be able to run that even with a VAFC or FMU

t25's are a lot of fun on the street. even at 7-8psi. you'll have full spool at arround 2500rpm :) as for upping the boost i'd go with what SOHC Rules said...

It takes a bit of work, but you can make the pre-set internal wastegates aadjustable. You need to cut a short section out of the straight section of the actuator arm. Then thread the ends, one left-handed, one right-handed. Join the two back together with a closed turnbuckle body.

Here is a pic of one from McMaster. You'll discard the hook and loop, and just use the body.


It takes a little planning to cut the right amount. When completed, you'll have a "somewhat" adjustable wastegate actuator.

I had heard about this mod and was having a difficult time finding straight forward answers. Leave it to D-series.org to come through.

...i was serious when i said stay out of boost. Your intial question had to do with breaking in the engine, and do you know what breaking in an engine has to do with? I've built 2 engines for boost and have had no problems with break in. I'm not 16 years old, i'm 19 years old, and i'm sure i've "wrenched" on many more engines than you so I'd appreciate some respect.

btw post count means nothing.
