I have one. It works great. The only downside to it is that you have to go under the hood to adjust it. But for $45 it is a nice piece. Simple to use and it works.

Do really notice a big difference and does it do what he says,? all the boost at once? Sal

Hard to say about the quicker spool up . I bought it more for boost control. The boost spools well, but it is hard to measure on the butt dyno.

16 PSI on a 49 isn't a test. 20-30 PSI on a 70 or larger is a test :yup:

Being that probably 75% of the members are running something closer to a TA49 than a 70 series...the test is valid enuf.

It is representative of many on this board. And moving air has very little to do with wastegate operation, anyway. :yup:

I haven't seen one of these but I guess it doesn't control the pressure created inside the turbine housing. Okay

No, it does not.

Pressure is pressure...volume is another thing.
