turbo mods....

i ask for anyone's opinion on turbo mods.....

what can be done to the wastegate to get the most boost?

Do you simply unplug the wastegate or I have heard of people taking out the wastegate entirely and wiring it shut so it will not open. Any other suggestions?

I have guages and am planning on buying a TS chip or something similar very soon.

Is another compressor wheel recommended when running that chip with that much boost.

Also, when you run that much boost, what is the best thing to do about the SES light coming on?

what are some of my options?

I will be able to address one of your issues. I have the TS 6-pos chip, I pull a 34ft enclosed triler with my race car in it. I usually pull in the 50hp position and when I am maintaining speeds of about 75 going up hills I experience compressor surge in the turbo. I'm sure this problem would be worse on any higher hp settings. This is a problem that many of us have experienced with our 7.3 psd's. Everyone says that the compressor wheel upgrade will take care of this problem. I am putting mine on this weekend so I will let you know.

TS 6-position chip, wicked wheel, 6637 mod, Warn hubs, Sonnax valve and Tricumulator springs, straight pipe, ion wheels, High pressure Oil crossover, ATI tripple disk torque converter, John Wood valvebody.
