By far the easiest and most cost-effective way of controlling the amount of pressure going to the wastegate is via a Gated Boost Control Valve. All Turbosmart Gated Boost Controllers are manufactured from high-grade brass and aluminium and are renowned for their easy installation, operation and stability. The extensive range covers all applications; from mild street-tuned engines, to purpose-built race power plants.
The "boost tee" manual boost controller is smaller and lighter than other manual boost controllers on the market. Set your boost and forget it! Boost is adjustable from under the hood with an accurate, proven Detent System. Easy to install and adjust. Suits any turbocharged vehicle. Comes with a billet mounting bracket for mounting inside your engine bay.

Setting Boost Pressure:
Adjustment to your boost controller is made by rotating the Boost Dial. Please note that the one turn (click) of the boost controller dial does NOT correspond to 1 PSI change in boost pressure. Rotate in a clockwise direction to increase boost and the reverse direction to decrease boost. Before making any adjustment, the Boost Dial will need to be fully closed (counter-clockwise).
If boost spiking occurs and is undesirable for your application, the gate system can be removed to give you a less aggressive boost curve. This modification is only required in a minimal number of applications.
Gate System Removal:
The gate system can be removed by the following steps. Perform this modification on a clean bench so that the ball and spring are not lost.
