Has any one tried shortening the wastegate rod on their HOTs to decrease spool up time?

If done correctly, it should have the same affect as adding an in line bleed valve or MBC.

i have played with my waste gate so i could spool up my turbo faster in 1 and 2 gears i t worked after numerous days of trying back and forth ( ya turn it a little road test and the turbos burning hot you have to wait til it cools to readjust it) untill i had it just right! then i wanted more and after that i got more power in 1 and second but lost power in 3,4,5 gear but more so in 4 and 5 . lot slower i started putting too much air into the engine.
