Wastegate Adjustment

While I have the turbo off doing the "Turbo Pedestal EBPV Gutting mod" I'm cleaning and checking everything out while it's apart. One thing I've heard about and never done was adjusting the wastegate actuation rod. Is this possible, and are there any good threads about it? I love how early 2003 6.0Ls with exhaust sound & whistle like jets, even at just above idle. It seemed someone posted about tightening the nut and shortening the rod would yield more turbo whistle on the 7.3Ls. Anyone who can comment on adjustment or send some links would be appreciated!
