Really confused with need for Wastegate actuator
Hey guys hoping you can clear some stuff up for me.... I have read about 20 threads today trying to decide if i should purchase dieselsites wastegate actuator for my stock 38 when i purchase my WWII.
Currently im running with the red tube unplugged and seeing 32psi max on the setup. i have read the description of the actuator and im still unclear if i will see any benefits from it or not. I wont be upgrading turbo and injectors for a year or two as i have just finished MOST of my supporting mods. I dont want to waste money i can save for injectors and turbo down the road, but that is definitely a ways down the road.
currently im running (performance wise)
Dual fuel pumps (one will feed each head, regulated return, not yet installed but in the mail)
4" downpipe to 5" exhaust, no muffler
Bellowed up pipes
203 deg thermostat (being ordered with WWII)
if i will see an mpg
or performance increase in daily driving or when i want to play and go fast it will be worth it to me.
im just unclear if unplugging the red tube does the same as the actuator (with the exception that i cant control exactly when the wastegate opens)
seems to be many mixed reviews, and the only guys ive seen reporting gains did not have tuners, or many upgrades in general
