    More boost wanted

    I'm a bit of a turbo newbie and only gave basic knowledge of engines lol I've heard the best way of geetin more boost is to shim the wastegate to the turbo? Has anyone done this and how much would I shim it? And is it a good idea? My 1.8t AGU is standard other than induction kit I do have bigger plans but this was spose to be cheap lol any info would be helpfull cheers

    You have heard wrong I am afraid....

    I very much doubt anyone has, you can adjust the preload of the actuator but this will probably lead to over boosting and destruction of the engine....

    Always the way... modding bug is a bugger to get rid of lol... anyhoo... best thing you can do is get a remap, that will increase your boost SAFELY and take it from there...
