    Unless you have a friend who's handy with turbocharging around I would have to suggest reading up on it before doing anything.

    A DSM turbo is internally wastegated. There should be a can with an arm mounted on the turbo, thats the wastegate actuator. The wastegate itself is the flapper inside the exhaust housing.

    I thought I remember reading you can use a DSM turbo manifold thats been modified. It could be a different engine that I'm thinking of though. Someone else will definately chime in with the right info there.
