EGR Wastegate Delete

I made my own wastegate delete setup i wasnt going to pay 1100 bucks for something that is that easy to make for under $150. I got it all on and it works great but does anyone know what spring to use in the wastegate?? Mine is opening at around 28psi of boost.

i bought a used tial 38mm wastegate for $100 and some pipes to weld to the flanges. you get your basic egr delete kit with just the plugs and plates. in my case i made them. you take the plate that hooks to the port under the manifold on the driver side and put a hole in it i think i used 1 1/4 exhaust tubing. weld the tubing to the plate. the pipe from plate to wastegate flange is about 14 inches long. weld your wastegate flange on the other end attach your wastegate route your downpipe out the bottom or fender well and youll have to mess with the spring pressure. dumps it to the atmosphere.

I think most companies are using larger gates. I'm not sure on the spring though. You want the gate to dump pressure at 65-68 psi of actual back pressure.

Yea they are using a tial 44mm wastegate. i think you can use a regulator to control when it opens. ill try it and let you guys know. My truck runs better on 29psi of boost right now than when i was running 52psi.

Go Precision Turbo billet wheels if you want to make more power. There was a test done recently. The billet Precision wheel out performed the BatMoWheel pretty much across the board. I'd hate to see someone lose some extra ponies because they heard the BatMoWheel was the greatest thing invented since sliced bread.

BatMoWheel = ALL HYPE
