it shouldnt throw any codes. all the bd wastegate does is doesnt open until 36-40 psi leading to more boost. the only code you might throw is a fuel resistant code if you are running a stock pump, other than that, the bd is pretty good wastegate

It wont nessecesarly be a bad thing. I have a Boost fooler and it does help spool up and generate more boost. I myself have a 62mm Wastegate and I am able to spool up to 65psi

I am using an Aurora5k and I limited it to 50-53psi.  That turbo can safely handle 70lbs of boost.

Are there any other upgrades i can do to my turbo, to get the maximun amount of potential out of it? BTW what is the maximum amount of boost that the Holset Turbo can achieve?
