rookie needs some help....
this truck is 99% street time, olds 455 with tt holset hx35, e85

my wastegates seemed to working fine when i was running 15 lbs but i now am going to pump gas and trying to get down to 8 lbs. with the 7-9 lb spring (i did test em) they cannot get it below 12 lbs.

gates too small?

poor header design?

thanks in advance

The wastegate's are mounted poorly. Pressure is the only reason anything is passing through them, you need a natural flow path for the gates to work effectively. I bet you would still get 12 psi with no spring once it comes on boost.

I ran twin deltagates on my 331, with a Eboost controller. They held rock solid boost from 10-28psi. Put about 1K crank horsepower thru them. Couldn't get them lower than 10psi though.
