Hi Ron. Thanks for sending in your question today. Like most OEM replacement components, an OEM wastegate actuator is set by the manufacturer to draw a certain amount of power and open at a specific amount of PSI. It’s always a good idea to test the wastegate actuator before installing (for psi) and after installation, but it should not need to be adjusted. I would refer to the Hyundai Sonata service and repair manual for detailed steps for replacing these components and following their advice.
