Wastegate after WW2

Im in the process of installing my ww2. working about 2 hours everyday on it. Probably will get the wheel in tommorow. then replace Downpipe. anyways. Whats should i do with my wastgate after installing the WW2? could i adjust my stock gate? should i plug the red line? if i plug that line is there any chace i could produce to much boost and harm something? if i should adjust the wastegate how is it done? I would like some info before tommorow am. Thanks . And i dont know if it matters but at times i do race people and have the truck in extreme on my 6pos tuner and WOT. Thanks again

I'm thinking you should leave it.
The waste gate bleeds off EBP, not boost and high EBP will kill your turbo

I'm no expert though, so I could be mistaken

I am fixin to install my WW2 as well. From everything I have read the factory one is fine and I plan on leaving the red line ON. That way the waste gate will still work and protect. I eventually will probably do the dieselsite waste gate actuator which is a nice looking tunable unit.

you can leave it and see how it reacts to the WW, i have the red line pulled off, and adjusted the actuator to mechanicaly open at 25/26 lbs of boost. Works very well for me. Egts are very low.

Some screw the actuator so the gate doesnt open, some just unplug the red air line.
Just depends really, if you leave all alone and egts drop and boost goes up, sounds good, leave it.
If egts go up and boost is the same or less, may need an adjustment ?

Re: Wastegate after WW2

Ok thanks for the input. Anyone have experience with banks wastegate? A few buddys recommend it. But they just buy things for the name.they don't actually research stuff.
