how' does that manually adjustable boost controller work?. . . . I thought you had to adjust that with different springs on the turbo actuator thing.

It's true that you can produce a limited boost level with just the wastegate spring but you can change that as well with a boost controller. It basically allows the actuator to go beyond the springs capacity and shut the flap a bit more to produce more boost. I may have mine hooked up incorrectly at the moment which is like:

Inlet nipple -> boost controller -> wastegate actuator

I think it's suppose to go:

Inlet nipple -> tee -> wastegate actuator

tee
|
L-> boost controller -> boost source (tap manifold)

Edit: according to Grimmspeeds install I have it hooked up correctly, hopefully. I am hitting wastegate psi (where I want it atm) at 0 adjustments on the controller

Oh, I always thought that nipple on the actuator diaphragm thing was for vacuum, but having it plumbed to the outlet side of the turbo, now I see that it's for pressure.

Thanks

it's basically just a fish tank bleeder valve...open for more boost..close for less. and or vise versa.
