when i bought my pt-54, the guy told me it has a 18lb wastegate on it. does this mean the minimum boost i can run is 18lbs? just curious

It's called a high pressure wastegate actuator. I have one also on my PT54. Lowest I can get it is 17lbs of boost. But 18lbs is what it's set for. If you want lower boost get a standard modified actuator for the PT54.

It won't line up. It needs a bracket welded on it to relocate the mounting. Nick Macale can do that for too. Tell him to send me $25 for the referral wink
