Turbosmart Ultragate
Recently purchased one of these, and upon inspection, noticed a gap between the plunger and the housing. This is my first time using an external gate, so I'm wondering if some or all wastegates are like this. Seems like it wouldn't be too great at helping spool.

your missing the seat or gasket? that seals it. its a ring that suppose to sit underneath in there on the side that bolts to the manifold.

I guess I need to shoot the company an email then. Seemed like everything was there. But like I said, I'm not familiar with externals.

Sending a wg without the valve seat... FAIL.

Is the valve seat still in the box tho?

God, I feel like an idiot. Found the valve seat stuck deep into the side of one of the little foam compartments. No wonder I never saw it.:o Found it when I was pretty much tearing the foam to shreds looking for it.

good thing you found it

Yeah. Since another one is about $30. That would have sucked to order a new one, just find this one, or have thrown it away.
