Default 4-5psi Wastegate acuator ?

Im having trouble finding a wastegate acuator for my turbo.

I need a 4-5psi actuator but all i can find are like 8psi +.

Anyone know of a 4-5psi actuator ?

Its for a 14g from a 2nd gen eclipse.

if you can fab up some bracketry then you may be able to find one at a junk yard. some of the older Saabs had EBC with a 4.5 pound actuator. that is what I'm using, but I had to weld on a bracket and tweak the rod.

SRT4 actuator is 4 psi, if you're able to make it fit.

I heard that, been looking for those too.

Depending on how quick this goes together i may just run the 10lbs. if its not done by tax time i will get ms and run 10psi.

I've got one. I *think* I got it from FM.
You want one with a large diameter can btw.
A small one suffers more boost creep.
