    I have an IHI turbocharger that I am putting on my del sol. My question is how do I set the internal wastegate to only allow 6.5 psi and whats the best way of doing it
    furthermore I have been told that an air compressor pressure regulator can be used in place but that sounds kinda whack. input would be greatly appreciated

    search my man...
    they are simple to adjust, but its a pain in the ass to figure out exactly 6.5...

    there was on article, let me see if i can find it
    i think someone did a write up on here...

    ok, go to this website
    http://thenew.gamesbbs.com/~turbosi/

    and click on wastegate calculations
    i have never done it but it will give you step by step
    looks like a real pain in the ass to me
    let us know how it works

    the wastegate actuator is the lowest you can go.
    most are 7 psi.
    6.5 - 7 psi is liek 3 horsepower. just run 7 already :)
