Wastegate Delete ?

I did the wastegate delete a week or so ago. I'm undecided at this point whether I got any additional boost (no guages).

I also did the DIY intake a week or so before the wastegate delete. Love the open filter sound.

I have noticed the last couple of days that when I accelerate firmly and it shifts into high gear, I hear a rattling noise (not the swhoosh from the filter) that I would describe as a fan slipping on a shaft. I may be describing it this way because I am conscious of the turbo. I stopped on the way home tonight and hooked the red tube back up and it seems to have stopped.

Any idea what this is?

I had a programmer and a boost fooler and it didn't seem to make a difference to me.

Hmmm, other guys running stock (no chips, boost foolers) said recently that the red hose plug trick was getting them from former maxes of 17-18 lbs now up to 21-22 with the wastegate delete.

I myself just did the delete trick this afternoon but have yet to take her out for a run. I just started it up and revved it up a couple times just to see if the boost would build off of a sitting truck...nothing happened, but I did notice a different sound from the turbo (?) that I hadn't before. Note: I had the truck's hood open and the door open so it wasn't like what I normally would hear driving down the road...but it was enough to make me think to myself, "Are you sure you want to do this?" I'm curious to see what others have to say, too.

your not gonna build boost just sitting there reving it you need to put it in gear brake and throttle at the same time "spooling" motor needs a load to boost

todd, 2 things, when i did the wastegate delete it took my boost max from 17 to 25, i even noticed the throttle would press down another 1/2 inch. i have the mods in my signature and a 60hp single position chip. i am stacking the chip with a hypertech stage 3 programmer this weekend. which would help more, the annihlator or plugging in the better wastegate you spoke of...and where do i get one? thank you!
