You can unplug it if you like, easy enough. Doubt you will see much if any more HP on the dyno.

Boost does not equal hp.

Re: No waste-gate...???

What boost numbers are you hitting with it on? If its 27 or more you will gain nothing and could actually lose IMO.

Re: No waste-gate...???

When I punch it will climb up and I hit 29 and it stays there from 65 on up to 100... I think I will just leave it plugged in, it's a long drive to the event and I need to drive it home lol but I will be doing the dyno and burn-out contest... So if something happens... It's ok I have a motor in the shop
