Here is what you need: https://www.hansautoparts.com/ROT906...ontroller.aspx
The supplier is questionable, I wouldnt purchase anything from this dude unless it was piddly stuff like this. And I would definitely hook up a cheap boost gauge to make sure it was working how you want.

uh bud you think that yourself

plenty of superduty 60 knuckles got steering kits welded on them and you don't hear of many failures

wastegate on my 1749v also ain't fallen off despite being welded on there

So you're saying if I were to get something like this, I could run the vnt15 and be able to control it easier?
