Wastegate mod for more boost?????

Does anyone have any pics of the red line I unhook to get more boost. I know it is the redline on the wastegate but the only redline I see is an electrical line on the wastegate solenoid. I though I was looking for a red vacuum line. Anyone have any pics to help me out?

Theres only one redline ! Its a really skinny looking line with a little black thing on the end that slips on to a nipple on the wastegate.

There is only one red line going to the wastegate. Unplug it from the wastegate, then plug it on a bolt that it reaches too. BTW it fits perfectly on the cat tube clamp.

Ok I got it I can't believe I didn't see that and realize it before I think the sun was getting to me. Now I have another problem my ITP overboost isn't working at all as soon as I hit 22psi it throws my CEL and I have tried to adjust it one click at a time like it says but I haven't had any luck yet.

Scan for codes first to make sure it is the over boost code. It could be something else other then over boost.

I dont think its supposed to raise the boost anyways. But when I did it, there was a definite improvement in boost response.

It raised my boost by about 2 psi, its meant to decrease the spool up time for your turbo.
