I got a Big Head Actuator for free and want to know if there is any point in putting it on my truck. I have a DP chip and just installed and overboost anihilator from ITP. Now should I put the actuator on too? any help would be great

Unhook the vacum line off your actuator. without the vac it will hold more pressure, will still be less than the banks but will give you a rough idea of any gains your gonna have without havin to mess with that little C clip on the turbo that holds the ACT. linkage on to install the big head, Its a PITA!

If its a freebie, and yer turbos still a stocker, then yea, stick it on there. Its a bit better than the weak pos stock actuator.... Wonder why you got it for free...?
