i am wondering if there is a bypass method for the actuator on the 1kd hilux. i would like to install a bigger turbo and external wastegate without having to replace the ecu and just install a steinbauer chip.

You could bypass the VNT by removing the actuator off the original turbo and just plugging it in so the ECU thinks everything is fine. Whether this would cause other issues though I can't say.

Why i asked is i was having a discussion with a tunee and the topic came up so i just wanted to get a feedback from it also
