I just installed them with the PSI vac. diagram and I am only geting a peak hold at redline of 13-14 is that normal? I have the BC set at 3 turns out and it spikes at 17. The WGA has 3 turns of the adjuster preload on the spring. I followed the PSI diagram th the T. Did I screw something up? PLEASE help. There are Hondas to beat!

Dtown... Do you mean that you can adjust the boost controller but it seems to have no affect on changing the boost? But, if you change the preload by turning the end of the actuator, the boost changes? Like the boost controller is not working?

I've had the same wastegate for about a month and a half now. I have constantly tried adjusting the preload on it to hold more than 12 - 13 psi at redline. No luck so far. All that happens is I get mad part throttle boost and no more at redline. I also have the turbo xs bc and have tinkered with it as well. I have come to the conclusion that the spring in the wastegate is the 9-14 psi spring and that the boost controller is not bleeding the boost from the wga fast enogh. Forge has other springs for sale, and the one we need is the 14 - 18 psi spring I believe. It only costs like 16 dollars. Not too bad. If you get that thing figured out, let me know. Right now I am boosting to 19-20 psi down low with no spike and dropping off to 12-13 or so by redline. Man it pulls at 20 psi. Wish I could hold 16 to redline!

chuck,
that is exactly what mine is doing. I think the new WGA spring would do the trick. I think I am going to order one tomarrow. I will keep u posted.
