I’m interested in this but have a few questions. How would i get coolant to go through the turbo to keep the actuator cool? Or just run it without cooling the actuator?

There’s plenty of options to do your own coolant flow through the cartridge.

Personally I ran mine without coolant for over 8 years 🤷‍♂️

Is there a full stand alone controller in stock? I have a vgt on my truck but controlled with a spring. I tried to buy a full stand alone vgt controller but it wasn’t in stock. I assumed they weren’t being made anymore

I dont know emough to be fully commited. What does the stand alone need to tap  into for power? Does it tap into the pcm at all?

I run a non-stock Lil'bb setup, and I did tap into the tach output wire from the PCM (quite easy to do)

You'll get a lot more tunability with the Lilbb than you do with the spring setup, as long as you still have the actuator for the turbo.

For cartridge cooling, I just tapped into the heater hose lines, you really don't need a whole lot of flow

You just need full standalone stuff.
Power when Key on, to LBB and a relay setup 10/15A to power on with key in the engine bay for the turbo
