In high-compression diesel engines, excessive drive pressure can not only rob horsepower, but also be detrimental to engine components such as turbochargers, head gaskets, push rods, and many others.
The factory compound turbocharger system on the 6.4L Power Stroke is known to produce excessive back pressure even in stock form. This problem is often amplified with the addition of more fuel, injection timing, and especially nitrous oxide.
This is why H&S Motorsports has released the 6.4L Power Stroke Wastegate Kit. The kit is designed to bolt to the factory driver side up-pipe and vents excess drive pressure to the atmosphere via a short dump tube. On test vehicles, we have been able to virtually cut drive pressure in half along with gaining anywhere from 10-30 horsepower!
Since each application will differ, wastegate regulator adjustments may need to be made to find what settings are optimal for your particular vehicle.
