Ok so if I disconnected my waste gate or pinched the line I wouldn't have to worry about breaking something. I like to drive my truck more then taking care of a lawn ornament haha.

I have been told by many of the diesel boys where I live you can push about 60psi of boost on stock gaskets before they blow. Not swearing by this just throwing it out there
