Wastegate

Hi Guys, Newbie here. I posted on "Wastgete Mod?" yesterday but I guess it's a cold thread. I disconnected my waste gate at work. I did as recommended, I pulled the red line and stuck it on one of the clamp bolts. Then I put a small piece of rubber tubing with a bolt in it on the gate nipple.On my way home I got into the peddal a couple of times playing around. After the second time my check engine light came on. I pulled over and shut the truck off and reconnected the red line. The check engine light stayed off and I continued home. I checked the code with my SC 1705 and found 0238 Turbo Boost Sensor A Circuit High Input and 0478* Exhaust Press Ctrl Valve High Input (this one set the check engine light).Is this normal? Did I do something wrong? I assume I made too much boost?

Most likely the PCM saw over 20-22# and defueled and set the light. Add a ITP Boost regulator and the SES light will go away. You didnt do anything wrong persay, but do you have gauges?

Sounds good CSIPSD. I think I better leave it hooked up until I get some gages, then continue with the mods! Thanks for the help. Great site!
