Title: Identifying a stock wastegate setup
Post by: Speedbird on 16:33, Mon 01 February 2010
Hello,

Is there a way to know if a wastegate setup has been altered to increase the boost and then switched back to original?

Thanks a lot

A way of telling if it has been played with to increae boost is the actuator arm will be shorter than standard.

Just look for obvious spanner marks on the locknut, i'm sure standard actuator arms have a hole in them, the threads visable through that hole should be punched flat.
