An internal wastegate has the wastegate valve is built into the turbine housing. The wastegate valve is controlled by an actuator which consists of a spring and a sealed chamber. The sealed chamber of the actuator is connected to a pressure only source normally on the compressor cover of the turbocharger. Turbosmart internal wastegate actuators are made from high quality materials which can withstand high stresses and temperatures for prolonged periods of time. They feature fluoro silicone diaphragms with nomex reinforcement to withstand high working pressures and high temperature.
Turbosmart internal wastegate actuators are highly adjustable, with a wide variety of springs between 3 ??? 26 PSI available, and also feature a collar locking system which allows for fast and reliable spring changes.
