Redneck turbo wastegate actuator BUILD YOUR OWN!
Tune a Wastegate.
Part of the jeep turbo project is the
idea of reliability and a big component of that is low Boost pressures. I could tell I was too high
during the testing and rather than buying a new actuator I have decided to
cut my down. It is a very simple modification project for anyone with a
few tools. Be sure to follow along as I work the kinks out of my turbocharged F head project.

The sole guidance I had found for this part of the project is located here:
HOW TO ADD 7 PSI WITH AFE WASTEGATE - CUMMINS 5.9L
This is how I added 7 psi to my stock turbo with the AFE wastegate Blade Runner sires
#46-60059. If I had to do it again I would of done it when I would have
more time to clean =) The truck has great throttle response after this
upgrade and now goes alot faster
Deffently something to do to increase spool alot faster =)

Adjusting Waste Gate
Learn How to Adjust Your turbo's
Wastegate. This video was created because we get so many inquiries from
our customers regarding adjusting their turbo's wastegate Boost pressure. This quick tutorial will show
you how easy it is to adjust your wastegate pressure.

How to change turbo actuator?
The simplest closed-loop control for a wastegate is to supply Boost pressure directly from the charge air
side to the wastegate actuator. A small hose can connect from the turbocharger compressor outlet, charge pipes, or
intake manifold to the nipple on the wastegate actuator. The wastegate will
open further as the Boost pressure
pushes against the force of the spring in the wastegate actuator until
equilibrium is obtained. More intelligent control can be added by
integrating an electronic Boost
Standard wastegates have one port for attaching the Boost control line from the charge air supply
line or Boost control solenoid. This
is the most common configuration and the only type of configuration found
on internal wastegates.
A dual port wastegate adds a second port on the opposite side of the
actuator. Air pressure allowed to enter this second port aids the spring to
push harder in the direction of closing the wastegate. This is exactly the
opposite of the first port. The ability to help the wastegate remain closed
as Boost pressure builds can be
increased. This also adds further complexity to Boost control, requiring more control ports on
the solenoid or possibly a complete second Boost control system with its own separate
solenoid. Use of the second port is not necessary. Secondary ports, unlike
primary ports, cannot be simply attached to a Boost control line and require electronic or
manual control to be useful. C02 can also be used to apply pressure to the
second port, to control Boost on a
much finer level.
A wastegate is a valve that diverts Exhaust gases away from the turbine wheel in a
turbocharged engine system. Diversion of
Exhaust gases regulates the turbine
speed, which in turn regulates the rotating speed of the compressor. The
primary function of the wastegate is to regulate the maximum Boost pressure in turbocharger systems, to protect the engine and
the turbocharger. One advantage of
installing a remote mount wastegate to a free-float (or non-WG) turbo includes allowance for a smaller A/R turbine
housing, resulting in less lag time before the turbo begins to spool and create Boost

Conversion this has been a ten year project that I've regained interest in.
My best time before the turbo II swap
was 13.95 but after the forged rods pistons and all the goodies I should
have the ability to do 12s. If your interested on how it was done

How to adjust / pre load wastegate actuator
1. Remove C clip on the waste gate arm
2. Undo the nut that holds the rod extender.
3. Rotate the actuator extender clock wise so shorten overall length.
4. The actuator rod should be half hole length short to the wastegate arm
when waste gate is fully shut.
5. Pull the actuator extender towards the Exhaust side and securer the extender.
6. Fit the C clip back to waste gate arm.
7. Tighten the extender nut.
