Default Boost Control for AMR LINK2

Skywalker and I went out to test and trouble shoot the boost control last night and found that it does indeed work. I believe it was a matter of having the Vacuum hoses connected right and maybe the polarity of the wires(Not sure about this). Most importantly was the settings for the WG base and Wg Sens settings to get it working. We are using a Internal Wastegate type of solenoid and hooking up the External wastegate as an internal wastegate(Top port of Wastegate is not used). We got it working last night with slight boost spiking and probably need a little more tuning to stabilize the settings. For better control LINK does sell a External wastegate type of solenoid for better control of the wastegate for $260. Please call or email us if anyone has any questions.

AMR - Thanks for the info. Please be careful about walking the thin line between information and non-approved vendor sales. The reason? The post was reported....

Sorry, it was not meant for sales. I just wanted to clarify that The link2 does control boost and I know there were a few people that was curious on a update about it.

Dually (or however that's spelled) noted. Thank you for clearing that up for me (and us for that matter).

I was wondering what happened to your plans on using the cheaper boost solenoid that you had. So by minor boost spike what kind of amounts and duration are you talking about?

Well actually that solenoid works well with internal wastegates. We are currently trying to see how well it will work with the TIAL external wastegates. Every turbo charger with wastegate has different spool characteristics, so some time may be needed to fine tune WG base and WG Sens settings to have desirable results. I do not see any reason why this solenoid wouldn't work. Currently we are hooking up the Tial external wastegates to bleed off similar to a internal wastegate. If people want to run constant higher boost levels ie. 15+ psi, I recommend using the more expensive stainless steel LINK external wastegate boost control solenoid. Otherwise the internal wastegate solenoid we sourced out should be good for people runing upto 10-12psi when using an external wastegate. I imagine 10-12 psi should be good enough for most guys that do not have a built motor.
