External wastegate position

Recommended Posts

Most manifolds I see situate the wastegate 0-20cms away from the manifold, and that seems to perform fine. The further away it is, the worse the control and spool will be, as you're routing a good amount of gas away from the turbine housing in order to fill up a capped tube.

Yea mine is positioned right around and under the turbo 1 foot away from the exhaust manifold..

I get a hell slow spool which i though it was the distance of the EWG, Could that distance cause exhaust gas build up and overheat issues?

should be fine.. as long as it's not 180 degrees from the collector.. 90 degrees is ok,.. Looks like a no name gate, I suggest when the budget permits get a Turbosmart 38mm
