I was getting low boost numbers also. I tightened the WG arm one full turn and it made a big difference. I would only adjust it half a turn at a time.

Taking the heatshield off is a piece of cake. There are simply 10mm bolts on the top and sides.

Is the heatshield trimmed to accomodate your dp?

Yeah it is, trimed, just for the bellmouth part, I can see the part of the thing I need to make shorter connected to the bell thingy lol. Would this require removal of top mount to get to the bolts on the sides if there is any?

You have your boost map completly maxed out and your ABC all the way open and your not getting over 13psi of boost?

Id do more trouble shooting before messing with the wastegate IMO.

I used to run my car when I had the stock turbo with the ABC totally closed and just using the stock EBC and the UTEC boost map to control boost and it worked very well without messing with the wastegate arm. I dont see why you shouldnt be able to do the same unless there is some issue?
