I ahve a 2000 tdi and while I plan on adding nozzles and upgrading the tune at a later date i am wondering if there is any way to get a mechanical adjustmentout of the turbo to increase boost?

The waste gate limits the amount of boost or a blowoff valve in some cars. I don't know if it possible to change thw waste gate out to a mechanical one controlled by a adjustable cable.

IIRC the stock turbo can do 18psi. Beyond that is pushing it. Consider the 17/22 if you want more. BTW, my 5 bugs all run bigger nozzles and stage 2 tunes with stock turbos.
No waste gate on these. They are variable vein controlled by vacuum.
