    you probably have a 5lb wastegate spring. buy a boost controller or replace the spring with a larger one

    ok stop right there.

    put your freakin waste gate on before you break something :)

    if you're only hitting a couple psi, you probably have a leak somewhere. chck all your couplers/piping

    Then hook up the wastegate and put in a solid peice of metal, therefore not opening the valve. Done.

    Or, unbolt the wastegate and put a block off plate.








    Then sell the turbo system to me. :ph34r:

    if he blows the motor with high boost more then likely something is going to go threw the turbo. If you wanna blow it just get nitrous. It works ever time, just find someone and get them to let you borrow your bottle. But Im with sol on this one. Sell it then get a gsr head!
