wastegate actuator

my truck has auto trans. and when you take off it holds boost good til you get to 3rd gear then it shifts fast thru the rest and was wondering if i changed the wastegte to an adjustable kind like the one from Banks would that help my shifting problem

You can unhook the hose to the waste gate and forget about it. They really don’t do much of anything, the 94-97 strokes don’t even have one and they definitely don’t effect shifting.

If the turbo wastegate is not holding then boost is lost due to the drive pressure being bypassed through the wastegated housing. Yes a banks big head will do more than unpluging the wastegate any day of the week. The turbomaster from dieselsite.com is even cheaper, better and totally mechanical.

However it has nothing to do with the shifting patterns. That would have to do with the tuner you are using.
