Eyelet on wastegate?

Would threading in or out the eyelet on the wastegate gain me any boost pressure?

no if you unplug the red line it will NOT help with holding more boost
i adjusted mine & then after a couple days i decided to unplug the red line completely, but i drive by my gauges. i am constantly watching my gauges even if im not towing

not sure on the surge (maybe someone else will chime in) but if you have gauges just unplug it to see if the surge goes away. remember to put it on the bolt on the clamp that clamps the air to air hose
