I have an Apexi single turbo system with Apexi racing wastegate. I want more control over my boost pressure but this wastegate is minimum of 10PSI. Can this be modified to adjust to lower pressures?

If not, what other company is good that I can adjust to low boost pressures? I mean, as low as 2-3 psi, but I still want to be able to push 16-18 psi when I want. I drive this car in ice and snow, so I need to be able to adjust the psi as low as possible to keep control in bad weather.

I would say, right foot mod...single shouldn't come on line so fast you loose control??? but what do I know.

good luck finding a gate that ranges 2-18psi.

Yeah, use the gas pedal to keep the boost down. If its icey and snowy, you should only be feathering the pedal anyways. I could go stop light to stop light all day without even getting into the boost if I wanted to.

I am using a Tial 46mm wastegate with a 3# spring in it. For higher boost I use the boost controller.
