How to Install A Manual Boost Controller?

Installing a manual boost controller will all depend 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

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