i was thinking about buying a banks wastegate accuator for my 99 2500 cummins i already have the superchip in it don't have boost gauge though. does the wastegate gain horsepower? do i need a boost gauge? will it work with edge juice with attitude cause when tax returns come in i am getting edge.

it should work fine, however, id wait until you get the edgejuice with attitude first  to see what the psi is.   Heck my stock turbo has spooled consitently to 42 psi.  THe max these turbos are capable of stock are 45 and most shops reccomend head studs at anthing higher then that.  the purpose of a waste gate actuator is to help the turbo spool faster, meaning you'll hit peak power quicker but you wont neccassarily gain hp

Duke is right you wont gain hp and torque on the engine itself it just makes the engine produce max hp and torque faster thats all still a good upgrade tho and i dont think it would affect any tuners you would slap on the truck either...

i got a bd wastegate and its bad a$$. it doesnt raise horsepower but it does affect how much boost you allow and dont allow to go to you turbo.

Yours is going to be the same as his. I was unaware of the capabilities of the HW35. when you do get that waste gate you can extend it

yes and no HC, i do have a HX35, but mine is bored and machined out to the specs of a HX40 inside, outside it still retains the factory look and inlet/outlet size. This and the custum tuned wastegate allows me to get 43psi easily and my egts are only maxxed out at 1100 even with my injectors.  If i hadnt had the inside machined, id not hit more then 40 and my egts would be sky high.  Also, if you really want it to sound awesome, pull the silencer ring out, i did gain 1 psi from doing that plus, another cheap trick for you is to get a boost elbow from BD or edge, they are like 6 bucks, but itll increase your max boost alot.

i believe bullydogdallas has the H1YB turbo, its a little bit better then the HX35 and even the HX40 but spools up a little slower do tothe 18cm2 housing as opposed to 16cm2 as the HX35
