Was looking @ my GTI today and noticed that that factory wastegate has got a threaded rod... My Qs is if I can adjust it to get more boost without n/e problems....Also I followed the vaccum line form it to some kind of valve w/ an electric plug connected, and noticed a small hole w/ a screw adjutment of some type.. Can I maybe adjust it there????

yes you can adjust the wastegate- and it has been done before, but the end result is that the ECU will adapt and you will be seeing the same boost levels again. Your best bet is to chip it and get a MBC , you can get a very good MBC for cheap here----- ANTZAM MBC

I wish adjusting the wastegate rod was as effective as say a gen1 DSM- those damn things are incredible.

Tell me about it, most turbo cars in my area have custom kits and you just adjust the W/G to increase boost and you dont gotta worry bout the ECU getting smart on your ass it just gets dumber....!
