Waste Gate

Does turning up the waste gate allowing more boost make any difference with performance, mpg, quarter times?

See, i have seen both pros and cons of that. I have been trying to run a mid 14 quarter but with just the six gun or SCT single i only hit a 15 but both a high 14.7 to be the lowest. What is the downside? If that bad what would be your advice?

To my knowledge the 6 gun over rides the custom program. 14.7 isn't very good and sounds like a banks number. Are you doing a boosted launch in 4hi? My advice would be to get a race tune from a vendor of your choice(I prefer innovative diesel) and see what it can do for you. Also, with the 6 gun there is no ACTUAL transmission tuning done. The motor is putting out more power and the tranny is still in it's "stock state".

Try a race tune on it's own. Unplug your banks stuff and give it a whirl. If you don't wanna go deep into your pockets for more power you can throw on the banks stickers, if you haven't already done it. Guaranteed 25rwhp. Custom tunes will produce the most power and best shifting.
