Ive read a few threads about this, and while I understand adjusting the wg preload may offer a bit more boost until t8 corrects things, I have only read a few accounts of this making things louder. I have a K&N and have removed the snorkel below my airbox. I dont want to go BSR or the DIY intake because I like the stock/cleanliness of my bay. Will adjusting the preload give me a bit more sound? I will be getting tuned (MPS stage 2) in a couple months and the exhaust will be replaced after that so Im just looking for intake/turbo sound without replacing/upgrading the bpv or wastegate.

Don't do that please, your tuner will appreciate it being left alone.

The problem with cranking that rod down is that your effectivley limiting the throw on that rod and how well the ecu can now regulate boost, its like going from an Xbox to playing excitebike on your old school 8bit nintendo. The end result is usually an unhappy tune (and customer) and lots of negative adaption.

Good to know, which is why I wanted to ask first. In that case Ill leave it alone and deal with being quiet for now.

I replaced my wastegate because I was suspicious it was leaking. I'm not sure I adjusted the preload like I should have. Any idea how to make sure its right?

Imagine the shame of everyone else not having an awesome duck call. But build a race car, THEN put stupid **** on it, and your stupidity just turned into the most epic things ever. :cheesy:
