There has been alot of these wastegate threads popping up in various forums I've noticed with regard to the 6.0, I wonder why it's doing that.

That's as good of a guess as any. I guess most of them are dodge people that have seen the "light" and haven't quite got all the ins and outs right yet, I dunno.
