It wont do much. You can just adjust your wastegate if you want more boost

Turbomaster wastegate rod is a great little upgrade. Works so much better then the stocker and is easy to adjust. Its the same principle as the Banks Big Head, but without any computer control.

Once installed if you want to raise your max boost you take a 10mm deep socket and an extension and tighten the wastegate, you don't even have to climb into the engine bay...

Less boost same thing, just loosen. Ran it with about every drop in turbo combo available and never had a single issue.

It's nothing more than a lazy mans way of adjusting the stock wastegate rod. Witch is easy to do if you have any brains.

And how often do you adjust your wastegate? Yeah maybe once or twice. IMO its not worth the money.

Again, you have never run one. Try commenting on stuff you have run or have direct experance with.

It holds boost longer and up to the exact point you want it to, the stocker does not do that period. Lazy mans way...LOL Just what I want to do, lay across the cowl ajusting a wastegate for an hour...
