    10 threads on the top or bottom?? Mine's only about showing about 3 or 4 threads on the bottom mate and boosts to 20psi all day, I'd personally wind it to about 4 threads showing on the bottom - that is if it's on a VXR turbo?

    It was when I had it new but Regal wound it right down to about 2 threads then back up another 1, Chris says if you leave it at factory setting when running high maps etc you'll kill the turbo..

    So let me get it right the actuator pushes down under boost doesn't it and so closes off the wastegate penny thingy in the manifold yeah??

    So basically is it the higher up the nuts are set the sooner it shuts it off and gives more actual boost or is it just making it hold boost more stable??
