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
• Make sure the boost dial is turned completely anti-clockwise before making adjustments.

One thought on “Manual Boost Controller Installation

  1. I have purchased a boost tee but am having trouble finding where to connect it. Found the pipe on bottom of wastegate but unsure of pressure line. The vehicle is mitsubishi triton turbo diesel 2.5 ltr 2015 model. Got me stumped.
