Default Adjusting preload IWG

So I'm wondering how to go about adjusting the preload on my ATP GTX3071r without taking the turbo off of the car. I can only make 17psi with my MBC cranked all the way up so I was informed I need to preload the IWG arm...

I loosened the nut but am not positive how to tighten/shorten the arm. Also will I need to take the wastegate off of the turbo to get the arm to turn? If so is it just attached by the two bolts?

Thanks

Ok so do I need to disconnect the wg arm from the actual wastegate part? And then screw the part into the arm and then reconnect? If so how do I disconnect that wg arm or what? Still can't really figure it out after lookin at it and messin around with it a little.

I really don't wanna take out my turbo again lol

There is a c-clip you have to pop off. Check this out for a better idea.

If you still need help with the preload let me know. I messed with the pre load on my gtx3071r a lot and it can easily be adjusted on the car. No need to pull the turbo. You will want to tighten it. Just pm me if you need extra help.

You are thinking that ATP gives a shit. I wish this was the case as well.

I suppose it can be argued that they are looked over before they are shipped, but it is always a good idea to hook the turbo up to a compressor and gauge and make sure the preload is close to where you want it...

Much easier to adjust out of the car and well worth the testing before dropping it in.
