wastegate disconnect still a good idea??

so now that the idea has been out there awhile, has anyone had any adverse effects from disconnecting the red line off of the wastegate, put it back on cause it didn't do much, or have contributions??

Well I did it last night and it works great. WHat you get with my setup is more boost sooner and top end boost goes up about 5PSI. Most boost I can get is in Heavy Tow and it tops out at 25PSI. I'd highly recomend this mod but watch your gauges.

I had it off for a while. My trans seemed to not want to shift at WOT so I re-connected it.

Look at the turbo. YOu wil see a red line on the right hand side that goes to the wastegate.

It bleeds off boost pressure.

I have mine disconnected and it's just fine, that's odd that your transmission doesn't want to shift. Have you checked or changed the fluid recently?

Im tempted to do mine but I dont even have a boost gauge installed so I'd have to be careful definitely not to go crazy WOT. dont need to blow her up.
