Wastegate Actuator

Fairly new to turbos and to the diesel performance side of things. I have a 2000 F250. Bought it a few years ago. Previous owner has a edge 3 stage in it, bit older, I have never plugged it in and changed the setting all he told me is it was in the economy so stage1.

The only performance thing I have done was throw a mbrp 5" straight pipe under it. 4" down pipe obviously.

rebuilt my turbo a year ago. I was thinking of pulling it off again and throwing a High-Boost Compressor Wheel in. Not sure on brand so open to recomendations.
My main question is should I also do a Banks Power High Performance Wastegate Actuator #24401? XDP sells them.

I live In MN and it is -5F here today. I am a bit confused on looking through other threads about wastegate info mainly because i seem to get lost in the "lingo". I think guys are removing them and plugging the hole but is this smart to do when I am this far north?

Thanks for your help, like I said I just get lost in the lingo and shortened phrases. I know my way around a snowmobile like the back of my hand but the diesel is my next learning curve.

I am not looking for huge gains. Plan on leaving stock injectors as long as possible. truck has 165,000 and going strong. I am towing alot. nothing super heavy but 3k-7klbs is fairly common. Just any little things and as much economy when I am not towing or towing for that matter. keeping egt's down ect ect.

1. You don't need to pull the whole turbo to put the wheel in so I vote to leave the ebv (thats what a lot of these guys delete) in.

2. I am getting the wastegate actuator from Dieselsite. Don't care for anything banks personally.

3. Bigger exhaust will lower your egt's.

4. Where ya is in minnestooooooota??

I am in Eagan. Go up to Grand Rapids or Grand Marais with sleds all the time. So just do intake and a compressor wheel and be done? What wheel should I get? I had that stupid turbo off twice for oil leaks when I first got it and then last winter I had to rebuild it. So i know how big of a pain it is especially for a guy with a bad back to pull it/install it but I know how.

Just out of curiosity what leveling kit did you install? I have air bags in the back for trailers and mainly my sled deck. so I would really like to level the front this spring.

I installed the 2 1/2 procomp kit like 10 years ago.I don't think its made anymore but any kit will work.I also have leaf springs in the front that might make a difference how it sits
