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.
Jeep turbo build log:
The sole guidance I had found for this part of the project is located here:
lower PSI on a GN wastegate acutator
How to lower PSI on a wastegate w/ out opening it up. This is a factory HD
wastegate from a 87 Buick Grand National set at 18-19 psi. I needed to
lower the PSI to 4-7 PSI.

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.
134926 / 1983 Dodge Shelby Charger
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/mahqh37
By 1983, the Belvedere-built Charger had become an established player in
America's re-invigorated compact car market. Eccentric gearheads knew if
you wanted to look cool, you bought an L-Body. And if you wanted to look
cool and go fast, you bought a Shelby L-Body. Averaging just over 430 miles
per year, this pint-size MoPar appears to have rarely seen anything other
than sunshine and warm summer days. A quick check of the car's
undercarriage and suspension reveals no evidence of catastrophic rust or
abuse. A quick check of the car's profile reveals its body has never seen
any major repairs. And a quick check of our pictures confirms its original
Santa Fe and Radiant Silver skin is both bright and glossy. That's right,
even 31 years after it rolled out of the showroom this spry sports coupe is
still a true head turner everywhere it goes!
In their effort to improve the Charger, Shelby and Chrysler did not
overlook the car's mechanicals. They tweaked the engine, milling the block
0.030 inches to raise compression to 9.6 to 1. They changed the camshaft
timing by advancing the cam a few degrees. They also made modifications to
the 2.2 liter's electronic controls to extract optimum performance.
Consequently, the Shelby powerplant develops 13 more horsepower and 10 more
lb./ft. of torque than the standard Omni mill. These enhancements, plus a
lower final drive ratio, make the car a tick quicker than the standard
Charger and its early '80s competition. Specifically, the Shelby has a 0 to
60 time of 10 seconds flat and a 117MPH top speed.
Shelby Chargers came standard with an A525 5-speed that feeds the front
wheels. Holding that tossable drivetrain off the ground is an original
Special Sports Suspension that utilizes shorter springs, stiffer shocks and
correct power front disc and rear drum brakes to both lower the car and
improve already responsive handling. And, at the corners of that chassis,
original 'pizza' wheels spin original 195/50R15 Goodyear Eagle GTs around
locking lug nuts.
This coupe's tri-tone cockpit, which nicely complements its 2-tone
exterior, shows hardly any signs of wear. The reclining seats keep you as
comfortable for quick blasts of speed as they do during long road trips. In
front of the driver, a pliable dash, which shows zero defects, is packed
full of gauges that work exactly as they should. And, below that dash,
crack-free consoles prop a black shifter on gray carpet that's protected by
carpeted and color-keyed floor mats.
If you're an enthusiast who likes to put their hardware on the road, few
classics deliver this blend of exclusivity and practicality. Call, click or

Also something to note around Mighty Car Mods: we are normal guys and are
not trained mechanics. We like to make interesting car mods and show you
how we've gone about it, but we can't promise that anything we show you
will work for your particular car, or that you won't harm yourself, someone
else, your car or your warranty doing it. Please be safe, be responsible
and unless you know what you're doing, do not fool around with very serious
machinery just because you've seen us make it look so easy. Talk to a
qualified mechanic if you are in any doubt.

have the ability to do 12s. If your interested on how it was done
