What port do you hook up wastegate to??
Dyno'd the Hellion today. With the small blue spring (8.7psi), they were seeing only 5 to almost 6 psi on the dyno. 447rwhp by the way.
My question is the Hellion kit directions had me install the vacuum line from the wastegate to the outlet of the turbo. After what I saw today, it seems to me that this would not give the correct amount of boost at the manifold? Wouldn't I be losing a few psi between the turbo outlet, intercooler, all the piping and into the manifold? Thus while the turbo might be seeing 8.7 psi, what I am worried about is what boost is actually making it into the manifold, right?
Would there be any problems if I move the wastegate vacuum reference hose to right before the throttle body and would I end up getting more boost to the manifold this way?
