Manual Boost Controller Installation


Installation of a manual boost controller depends on the type and configuration of your turbo system. Below are the three most common ways of installing a Turbosmart Manual (Gated) Boost Controller.


INTERNAL WASTEGATE SETUP

• Allow the engine to cool down before installing your boost controller
• Locate the pressure source port and the wastegate actuator port on the turbocharger assembly
• Remove the factory boost control solenoid if fitted from the boost pressure supply port while leaving the solenoid connected to the ECU
• Install your boost controller in the wastegate pressure line with the wastegate arrow pointing towards the wastegate actuator
• If your wastegate actuator has additional ports, these will need to be blocked
• Secure all silicone hose ends with hose clamps
• Mount your boost controller bracket onto the vehicle, then attach the boost controller onto the bracket with the supplied screws
• Make sure the boost dial is turned completely anti-clockwise before making adjustments.


 

EXTERNAL WASTEGATE SETUP


• Allow the engine to cool down before installing your boost controller
• Locate the bottom port on the external wastegate and the pressure source port
• Install the Boost Tee in the wastegate pressure line with the wastegate arrow pointing towards the bottom port on the wastegate
• Secure all silicone hose ends with hose clamps
• Mount your boost controller bracket onto the vehicle, then attach the boost controller onto the bracket with the supplied screws
• Make sure the boost dial is turned completely anti-clockwise before making adjustments.

 


 

PARALLEL TWIN TURBO SETUP


• Allow the engine to cool down before installing your boost controller
• Locate the wastegate actuator ports on both turbochargers and a pressure source port
• Remove the factory boost control solenoid if fitted from the boost pressure supply line
• Install your boost controller in the wastegate pressure line with the wastegate arrow pointing towards the wastegate actuators.
• Be sure to keep the hoses joining the wastegate actuators at equal lengths
• Secure all silicone hose ends with hose clamps
• Mount your boost controller bracket onto the vehicle, then attach the boost controller onto the bracket with the supplied screws
