Should I Turbomaster

Just wanted to get some opinions on whether you guys thinks I would benefit from a Turbomaster wastegate controller? If so how?

Save your money and up-grade the exhaust housing to non wastegated. Much better set up than the stocker and no need for a wastegate. Beans Diesel Performance - 99-03 Power Stroke 1.0 A/R NON-wastegated Turbine Housing w/ adapter (Powered by CubeCart)

but if you didn't want to go that way right now,you could unplug the red line(tube) or you could shorten the wg's rod inorder to make the spring stiffer or since you have a boost guage you could remove the wg and wire the gate shut.I like the TurboMaster because its easy to adjust.

Re: Should I Turbomaster

I like my turbomaster but if I had to do it again I would pull the turbo to put it on because of the e clip in back on the waste gate. It can be done in the truck with a mirror, alot of cussin and patients. My suggestion is pull the turbo and do what the guys about said

Re: Should I Turbomaster

clamp that #### shut, dont waste your time or money on an aftermarket actuator,... or as said before take that money and buy a non wastegated housing

Re: Should I Turbomaster

I noticed a definite improvement with the turbomaster, even with stock tunes. Install can be hell if all does not go right. I had a defective, possibly, bent turbomaster and I could not get it to work right, even with the turbo out of the truck. It would have been a total nightmare in the truck. But, Bob at Dieselsite sent me a new one and then the install was a joke, out of the truck.
