it depends on your boost controller.. but yeah i know. thats why you could purchase the 12-14psi wastegate actuator from FSWerks

but its not worth the trouble when your on the stock engine or pushing less than 25psi. a boost controller combined with a 12-14psi wategate actuator works fine

Just weld the damn wastegate shut and let the boost controller do all the work!

J/K, if I was running more than my 11psi, I would go with an external wastegate. For now I'm not, so I don't feel the need. I agree that Tial makes some mean products, I love they're 50mm blow-off valve, but for what we're running, I don't think it's necessary!
