I am in the same boat, so I am looking to see what the replies are now. I am running EFI Live but am not getting the boost that I want so I either need the PPE Boost Valve, or a new wastegate.

Wish I could've helped, but I am where you are.

I put my boost vavle on the other day, It didnt make a difference tell 3rd gear, i went from 26-27psi to 30psi in 3-5 locked gears, it cleans up the smoke a little more now :shrug:

The amount of boost you are going to see will increase with every upshift. I wouldn't go above 34 psi in 5th or 6th, that seems to be the max that the turbo can handle. Mine hits 32-33 in 6th and I've had it for close to 20k mi. and still get the same boost. I decided to go with the adjustable w/g actuator for the adjustability and larger diaphragm - I get more boost sooner (lower rpm) than with the stocker.

Stock programming will limit the amount of boost due to factory settings. I personally am running EFI Live for tuning and tuning myself with some help from some vets of EFI Live. Once I get my trans in next week, look out 500RWHP cause here I come!

Was there something wrong with the Banks Actuator? Help me out as I am thinking of either a Banks or BD.
