Hey guys so started having the low voltage to wastegate issue on my SX. Watched some vids and read the threads, but still having an issue. When I was moving the actuator all the way to the right as I saw in the vids, I could only go as high as 4.01v. But I notice when I move it over the rod does seems to skip/jump a little bit its not smooth (not sure if it should be) so wondering if I should order the new actuator. I turned the rod end counterclockwise a turn or turn and half. It did seem to make it better for a couple drives but its back to going limp every time after you give it heavy boost.

Ran it a bit and measured it again after sitting a while earlier and measured the same. Not sure If Im missing something or just need a new wastegate. Thanks for any input

Looks like Im the only one with this issue lol, no response on facebook either. Well ended up ordering a new wastegate from Hyundai off amazon and that did the trick. Back to normal so far.

Sorry man, just wandered in here today... Yeah If it go's limp and it's at 4.0 you probably needed that replacement. Dealer wanted me to replace mine, I think it was like 600?? I did the voltage adjustment myself and it's still holding up.
