Mechanical Wastegate?
Make Your Own Mechanical Wastegate Controller

Looks pretty interesting actually, anyone try it?

interesting but definitly seems partial to internally wastegaated turbos which i think is obious but definitly seems like it would have its positives

I might give it a shot, I have a broken T28 WG anyway

i agree its pretty ghetto and there probably is a thin line between saving money and not having to go externally gated wastegate but then i guess there is a line that goes over that and into ghetto lol its amazing what people will figure out how to make their own parts and stuff

I've been thinking about this thing again. When done right I can see it having benefits over regular boost controlled WG's.

  • Fairly easy adjustment of boost
  • Always consistent with opening and closing the gate.
  • Might help build boost sooner
  • Reliability should be better then with diaphragm. Not having to worry about the lines disconnecting, boost leaks, over-boosting due to the WG boost line failure.

I know this one is ghetto, but when looking at it design wise, this method sounds a bit more reliable/better.
