    Just got passed this link from a chap on the Volvo club however, it applies to all turbo chargers. This is the only real media I have seen that simply but, effectively explains how turbo charger systems and all the related components work It also clearly and accurately demonstrates how to set up ones wastegate correctly

    Hope many find this useful.
