Wastegate

the banks or bd wastegates will help your boost by approx 11 to 12 psi which is pretty drastic.. anything over 40psi is when you should look into a bigger turbo, but the install is easy... two bolt, the boost line, and its off, when installing make sure you dont over pressurize the wastegate or you may cause it to stick open or worse closed... the bolt it up after you pressurize it and put the arm back on...

I'd just buy a boost elbow, or like I did build a manual boost controller. Same concept, less $$$

The nice thing about the banks and BD kits is its a different actuator with a stiffer spring, so the wastegate will stay closed longer with higher drive pressure. The flip side, is that you don't really need one with a stock charger IMO.
