I hear people say unplug your waste gate, then some say no, its better if you leave it plugged in. Which is true? Will it hurt anything? i just got a new turbo, and don't want to hurt it
Agreed.your stock injectors, I may be wrong here, will not create enough boost to put your TN out of its map, so do a few test runs on it and see which way you like it better
Leave it plugged in. Especially on a stock turbo. The stock turbo is out of it's map by the time you get to 30 psi and if you are making over that by unplugging it you are just heating the air and not getting any more mass into the engine. I've seen it actually gain power on the dyno by plugging it back in. There have also been several guys post on here that after plugging it back in they noticed more power and their fuel mileage went up.
A turbo map shows it's efficiency at a given pressure ratio (boost) at a given air volume or mass and what rpm the turbo is spinning in those circumsnaces. It also shows where the turbo would stall or surge in relation to pressure ratio and air flow.dumb question probably, but what do you mean out of its map? Is that an acronym for something or am i just retarded tonight?
While this may be an issue in some cases for those who have solved that problem already it is just that the turbo is beyond it's useable range and that by keeping the waste gate closed you are creating a ton of drive pressure which further diminishes the increases you THINK you are getting by uplugging it. It's there for a reason. And more boost does NOT = more power. The only time more boost or denser air is going to make more power is if you have fuel that's not being burnt AND if you aren't superheating the air so that you are actually just getting the same amount of air mass in a larger volume making more pressure.unplug it but get a boost fooler
you just need to get a boost fooler and put inbetween the map sensor and the actuator it blows the valve at around 24 psi so that your truck does not go into de fueling mode and you loose power but with out one you not gonna be able to feel much of a difference because your truck is gonna underfuel it self trying to keep the boost down but that fools the map sensor so that your still getting all the fuel your truck needs and thats when you will see the difference
