What makes a good internal wastegate?
Heat handling capabilities – The internal wastegate is mounted near the turbocharger, an area which usually has poor air circulation. The high quality materials used for Turbosmart products ensure that the internal wastegate actuators can withstand high temperatures for extended periods of time.
Diaphragm strength – The diaphragm seals the top chamber of the actuator so that pressure can build up and apply force on the spring to open the wastegate valve. If the diaphragm cannot withstand the pressure or heat being applied it can rupture resulting in an uncontrollable increase in boost pressure. Turbosmart internal wastegate actuators use fluoro silicone diaphragms with nomex reinforcement to withstand high temperature and working pressure.
Adjustability – Internal wastegates need to be tuned to achieve the specific boost pressure required based on target boost pressures and exhaust back pressure. Choosing a spring rate close to the boost pressure you require reduces spool up time and allows for better control of pressure at higher rpm. Turbosmart internal wastegate actuators offer a wide variety of springs between 3 – 26 PSI and the collar locking system which allows for fast and easy spring changes.
Choosing the right spring – When using a boost controller, usually the maximum boost level that can be achieved safely is double what the spring is rated to. If your target boost pressure is 20 PSI, a minimum spring rating of 10 PSI is recommended. If the spring rating is too low, as boost levels climb, the increased flow of exhaust can easily influence the valve as you only have the spring trying to keep it closed.
Turbosmart wastegates offer superior flow path and high temperature resistance, outperform and outlast the competition and are recommended by a number of World Champions.
