Question about the red hose on the turbo!

So again I was bored watching videos on youtube and came across this.

In the comments a guy said to remove and plug that line and you will get around 8 more psi boost. Is he crazy because ive never heard of anything like that?

I seriously doubt you'll get 8 pounds out of it, but mine is unplugged.

Haha thats about what I figured if anything. 8 pounds is another housing lol. I thought the wastegate had to be connected. Could be interested but costly sounding.

You're not gonna hurt anything. Unless you remove, weld, or wire off the wastegate arm itself, the drive pressure inside the exhaust housing will force the gate open before it hurts anything.

The red line comes off the wastegate solenoid, which is supposed to help electronically control the wastegate.

You will gain some boost by disconnecting it or making the tube longer but if it goes too high you will get an over boost code.

Unplug it from the wastegate, and shove it down on the threads of one of your intercooler pipe clamps.
