Cool the air going in, even out the airflow. Are you wondering if there'* a screw you can turn? I don't think so.

The only way to really increase boost is to start replaceing parts, mainly intake and pulley. There is no way to adjust the level of boost that the engines make, other then reving them up or modding them up.

There is a wastegate on it, but it'* not a good idea to alter that. There was a big ol' argument about that a while ago. BRB, I'll get the thread.

To turn up the boost you put on a pulley. It isn't like it is a big deal or anything, it is just a pulley. Nothing major. That is how you turn up the boost. If you want more boost, that is the way to do it.

Yes. Please don't do anything with the wastegate. You're only asking for trouble because you haven't ported and polished the intake and heads, right? Added larger ratio rockers? Opened the exhaust? List goes on and on of things you need to do before you mess with the wastegate and even then, it doesn't sound like a very good idea. It'* there for a VERY good reason, but...To each his own.
