GTP38R more boost

Just installed the GTP38R into my buddys 2000. We also installed stage 2 sticks with the DP chip, tymar intake, 4" exhaust and some other mods. Right now i am only getting 19PSI (wastegate opening) and was wanting to turn it up to about 30-32 PSI. What is the best way to do this??? adjust the wastgate (what PSI should it open at with handheld pump?) or put a regulator on the wastgate line?? any ther way???

Turbomaster makes a wastegate control rod that will work with your 38R. It's relatively inexpensive and will work much better than the factory actuator.

Sent you a pm. You don't need some expensive wastegate.

You can ajust the factory WG rod 3-4 turns and try that. Its a pain to do, but there is no reason to buy a new one with the 38R. Stock turbo, thats a differant story.

That being said, the nice thing about the Turbomaster WG rod is it can be ajusted in about 10 seconds to as tight as you want or as loose as you want. Just takes a 10mm wrench and an extention.

The best option IMHO... like said above... 1.15 housing and never look back.

You could, but I would bet the wastegate is just loose from the factory...
