Hey guys, just got my first diesel, new to this site, and I need some help with my truck. So I just bought a 97' powerstroke with a 5spd manual and 140k miles and its got some stuff done to the engine but I have no clue what the previous owner(s) have done to it. I brought it in to my diesel school the other day and my teacher noticed that I don't have a wastegate on my turbo. It has the little valve but no actuator. Is this a common modification? Its got a 5" straight exhaust and a chip that I can turn on from the dash, no clue what kind yet. The turbo spools up really fast even with the chip off, is this because of the no wastegate? Im a little worried about having too much boost? Is this a problem? If so should I put a stock wastegate on or an aftermarket? Thanks
