it says on slowboyracing.com, "If you are looking for a Dyno proven 40-50 WHP over your stock actuator, please take a closer look at what SBR has brought to you" this doesnt mean that the aftermarket acutator is given u 40 whp right? how much do u think ill get out of a sbr actutator ?

wastegate actuator

lets you boost more and hold more psi till redline

yes raising the boost can give gains from 30-40 whp, but you have to do it safely.

yes
you can adjust the boost by tightening/loosing the nut on the wga (wastegate actuator) or you can use a boost controller along with the wga and set the wga at a constant and use the bc to control the boost

its easy to put on yourself...
and you just have to adjust it then drive your car and see what it boosts.
then adjust accordingly to get what you want. most people set the wga to about 15-16 psi then use a boost controller to up the boost after that. if you have an ebc (electronic boost controller - i recommend the greddy profec b spec 2) then you can adjust the boost from inside your car while you drive.

btw the wga (actuator) will hold boost over stock but its mainly for holding your boost at redline (as it drops) and like myfault said the BC is for upping the boost until redline. or you could be like me and just set the wga to 18 and leave the MBC closed.
