    I think the regular one comes with multiple springs, theres is preloaded/ ready for install out of the box. The regular one requires some work .

    Also looking at your signature has me a bit confused, WS6 LS1 swap? They came stock with an LS1(current + 8 other LS1 cars under my belt).

    You on LXforums? Had a few cars on there as well.( Just sold my scat pack.)

    Nah I had a ws6 lt1 car too. It was a 97 though.

    I thought about swapping it, but sold it off to a friend who did instead.

    I'd guess an original lt1 ws6 car is pretty rare now. But who wants a rare car that rarely runs lol. No offense to lt fans.

    Minor clarification needed. When installing the Tune+ wastegate it's recommended to set the hole in the arm to mate up to the flapper door, then turn the wastegate clevis 4 full turns so that it puts preload on the flapper door to remain shut until commanded.
