Setting TN wastegate actuator?

Hey guys,

Had a quick question...

I have a TN non BB turbo to install on my truck, I hope next week....

I was thinking of adding my Banks BH actuator to it but decided no to...

I know that the banks says to set their actuator till you can slide it over the rod and pre-load 4 more turns...

I pulled the one off my TN and could easily slide it on and off...

Should I put some pre load on it??? should I leave it the way it was.... Bottoming out the rod gives me 4.5 turns....

Thanks for the help guys!!!!!

Bob

Re: Setting TN wastegate actuator?

I didn't touch my wastegate actuator, Kevin from BWD said it's set up just right from the factory, it looks just like a stock one but it's MUCH better. When i had the EBP gauge in my truck before BO i could run 27-28psi boost and have around 45 psi of backpressure.

I would give it a couple turns to tighten it down if it were me. Much easier to do on the bench than on the truck.

Re: Setting TN wastegate actuator?

I ran my ATS BB with the wastegate disconnected, just a rod to hold it shut.
