boost.

a diesel mechanic told me that if i want a cheap way to build more boost is to buy a bigger fitting that connects the black tube to the end of the wastegate actuater. he also drilled a hole in the fitting to allow excess boost out. is this anything anyone has heard of?

see i don't know what exactly he was talking about because i thought that too unless with a stock turbo it is safer to blow the excess boost out. i don't know if anyone else knows it would sure help
