Turbo Master WasteGate Controller, Any Good??

Has anyone used the Turbo Master Wastegate Controller? I'm debating on that or the banks big head when I get my DP tuner.

I loved mine. Worked great, if you want more boost, tighten it up with a 10mm socket... less- back it off a turn...

Much easier then the banks... Had one on my 99, it worked but it was a bear to ajust.

Like you said i've heard the ease of adjustment is great. Plus is seems like a much more rugged design, even over the banks, which i've heard is just a stronger spring

I just had mine installed today. I noticed it boosted quickly, but I am not getting more than 18# of boost. Instructions says tighten to 2" of spring length to start and then go from there. I have already tightened so much that its probably now about 1" of spring length. Do I need to keep tightening?

I know I need more mods to get where I need to be. I am just doing one thing at a time. My truck is early 2000 and its all stock except it came with K&N filter and Autometer gauges for boost, trans temp, pyro when I bought it. So I have added in the KCM HPX line and ITP fuel system and pre filter kit (Hutch Mod). Also cut the fuel filler and vent tube off the tank. I also installed a boost fooler just in case if I went over 25 psi.

I will be getting DP chip soon, but not now. Next in plan is better intake and 4" exhaust set up.

I am just trying all the good affordable mods to the truck so I can share it with my friends with same trucks.

I haven't put one in my truck yet but, probably my guess is 18 psi is all you are going to get out of the turbo with stock tuning even with the spring cranked down. With adding exhaust and intake you probably aren't going to see an increase either. I could be wrong, but I think I'm on track. Tuning is what gets you more fuel and more boost. About 25 psi is all you are going to see with the DP and the stock wastegate, I believe the stock wastegate will only allow you to run 25psi, but then crank the spring up on the turbo master and I bet you will see 30psi.

i just bought mine and got it friday, but ^^^^ he's right you could set it for 30 psi but you'll set off the ses light everytime 20-25 psi is a good setting for it.

Also true about a light above 25 psi, and the PCM will defuel the motor, but this is all taken care of with a Overboost Annihilator from Dennis, I made sure I had one when I ordered my DP

Check it out
