Why would you want to run an open wastegate? Its pretty loud and you have to build a dump tube anyway, so you might as well run it back into the downpipe. I wouldnt run it for the street.

Not realy any gain from it , and like he said it sounds like an Exh leak when you get to the set boost and the WG opens , If you were trying to make 300 i would say yes but for 250 or less no

Actually it doesnt sound that bad... the only reason I dont run an open WG anymore is the new DP is too big to allow any more pipe to be ran.

You need to take care when you place your dump tube back into the exhaust, you dont want it to create alot of unwanted turbulace in the exhaust flow.

you guys should build a custom Downpipe for that roush kit and change the angle of the wastegate to use Orange's advice to angle the dump-pipe into the lower part of a new downpipe for the turbulance idea.

in a year ill be building the motor and changing the turbo. ill probably keep the basic roush lay out but the waste gate will be dumped then i will build a custom down pipe for it, but until then it will do just fine.
