Wga Preload/adjustment

Those of you running a forge wga how did you adjust it ?, I know the longer the rod the easier the wastegate will crack. How much preload should I put on the wga. Forge said 2-3mm at most. I'm pulling the turbo adjust it, and I want to avoid having to do it again. I'm using the yellow spring 10-14lbs, want it close to the weakest setting. Overboosting like crazy right now. Thanks for the help.

Why are you pulling the turbo? Is it not on yet? The preload is just that, 2-3 mm from the end of the rod.

I need the turbo inspected as well as adjusting the wga. It's already on there, I did what you said to test it and it's way too stiff, gotta adjust it. If I remember 2-3mm is 4-5 half turns. I'll either adjust it myself or run it by a local turbo shop.
