Wastegate plug

The red boost line that plugs into the wastegate, if it is unplugged is it doing any damage to my turbo? Except the overboost code i throw when i put it to the floor. Im just looking for some pros and cons.

some pros i have experienced is a lot faster pick up.

Thanks
Dillon

c-power: the wastegate stays closed with the hose unhooked. the hose is a vaccum hose that sucks it open

there shouldnt be any damage to the turbo with stock injectors but if you go bigger i would suggest leaving it hooked up or you will run too much boost for your stock turbo and then you can say bye bye turbo

You will over boost your turbo and it will not last long at all, i would be carefull or your going to be looking at buying a new turbo.

you wont overboost with stock injectors. i put 15000 or so miles on a 00 f450 pulling steel back and forth between brownsville and houston averaging about 17k per load running 75 or 80 never had any turbo problems, the only problem the truck had was it loved sucking down fuel. and before anybody says something about running that fast pulling something i was stupid and now relize that and dont drive like that anymore...

instead of unplugging it you can build a boost tube for about 5 bucks in autozone parts.....it doesn't leave it open and will still work, it will just stay closed a little bit longer. I did mine with the little plastic pieces that join to hoses together, and a small piece of tubing from autozone( cost me about 3.xx, I only had to pay for the fittings, they gave me the hose since it was only about 2" long ).

Will that boost tube mod work on an early 99?

What do you exactly have to do again?
