Nothing is more exciting then when a great company comes out with a new award-winning product! Turbosmart has released their much anticipated e-WG Eletronic wastegate. This is a fully electronic actuatable external wastegate in 45mm and 60mm options.
This isn’t the first time TURBOSMART pushed new boundaries
for wastegates. In 2016 they launched
the Gen-V external wastegate range. This
model is well known for its design.
Designed as a modular concept for interchangeable parts through the
line. This gives the ability for
actuators and bodies to be swapped around to make custom applications. This
ensured Turbosmart had a product for every customer, no matter the size or
Turbosmart’s e-WG45 and e-WG60 will give you the same flow
& interchangeability of Turbosmart’s Gen-V range. Additionally, will gain
the kind of control never seen before. The e-WG series is independent of any
reference signals, without the need for compressed gas or boost hoses. Additionally, you can fully adjust your
tuning interface, with no need for changing springs. (*Boost Control is
completely adjustable from your laptop*). Mechanically actuated wastegates are
tried and tested over many years. The
Gen-V has proven itself throughout harsh environments and continues to set
world records. The e-WG will provide the same performance & reliability, but the addition of truly
The e-WG works with the modular housings of the Gen-V products. That means wherever your Turbosmart Gen-V
products are fitted, the e-WG will bolt on as they use the same mounting &
flange orientation. However the actuator housings of the new e-WG range are
different, you’ll need to make sure there is enough room in your engine bay for
the new design.
Turbosmart will provide fast & efficient boost control
against up to 80psi driven pressure for the e-WG60. The e-WG45 will provide boost control over
120psi driven pressure. Additionally, there is an onboard rotary encoder for
feedback & provision for optional water-cooling.
A programmable ECU (Engine Control Unit) is needed to
control a Turbosmart e-WG. Additionally, you will need a ‘high current’ 20 amp
output, and a spare analogue input to make it work. Most quality ECU’s will have the capability
to drive the gate for accurate boost control. Its always advised to speak to a
skilled mechanic or tuner to ensure you have everything it needs for proper operation.
If this product interests you, it will be readily available
in early 2020. The parts can easily be found through their part numbers.
