wastegate delete does this wrok

im just wondering if unplugging the red line from my wastegate really gives it more power or not. i had my unplugged and took it to a diesel shop to have a fuel leak fixed and they told me not to do that. they said it does nothing. i also seen a guy on here have a dyno sheet with it plugged and unplugged and the hp was the same. it made no power. so why does everybody say unplug it?

I'm seeing 4 more psi on my truck under hard throttle with the wastegate control line disconnected.

It will not give you any more power. Maybe a LITTLE more boost (esp. if the actuator is weak) but no increase in power. For that, you need to ad fuel.

The red line comes from the electronic gizmo on the spider that helps the PCM control boost levels on a stock truck. Can't remember the name of it right now...

Anyway, on a tuned truck boost is going to go to whatever the tuner set as a "limit" (usually no limit) before the PCM starts trying to control it.

However, unless you've installed something like Dieselsite's wastegate actuator, or taken yours off and chopped the rod to prevent any movement, than backpressure is still gonna push the gate open from the "bottom" and you'll lose pressure that way.

The red line is an assist. It won't hurt a thing to remove it. I don't have the red line, the green line, or the electronic wastegate assist anywhere on my truck.

But I wouldn't really expect removing it do much other than neaten up the engine bay.

Unplugging it keeps the wastegate from opening, allowing the turbo to build a little more boost than it does from the factory. That is it. It doesn't ad power, and serves no purpose on a stock truck.
