Non wastegated turbo concerns
Quite a few years back, I replaced my whole turbo with a beans diesel 1.0 A/R non wastegated turbo to fix my turbo surge problem I had after putting on a cold air intake. At the time I had no idea what the wastegate was even for but my main concern was only fixing the turbo surge. Now I am thinking about putting a custom chip on and have some questions about overboosting. I would only want an econo tune and a couple tow tunes, but I don't want to overboost and damage the engine.
I guess my questions are:
What are the chances of overboosting and damaging the engine with a chip, and what about even on the stock setting. I do a fair bit of towing....mainly bobcats and mini-x's but never worried about it before since my truck is not chipped. I don't have gauges either.
