What Size External Wastegate Size To Use

Learn What Size External Wastegate Size To Use

The Size of the External Wastegate That you Should Use Depends on 2 Major Factor Which are:

  • What Size Engine Do you Have (2.0 liter 4 cylinder, 2.5 liter 6 cylinder, v8 4.4liter etc)
  • What Size Turbo You are Using

Here is How You Use This Information to Determine Which Wastegate You Need to Run:

In Most Cases the 38mm Wastegate Is Sufficient to Control Boost for 4 cylinder  and 6 cylinder engines, if you are running a 60mm turbo or smaller such as GT35r. Sometimes You May See 4 cylinder engines using a very Large turbo and 2 external Wastegates. The Reason Why is Because Your Engine Needs 2 Wastegate or 1 Larger Wastegate is Because When You Run a  Turbo that is 67mm or Larger You Need a Wastegate(s) that can Properly Control Boost Levels at Higher RPM Because of the Increased Amount of Air Flow.

What Size External Wastegate to use

Another Great Example Is If you have a V8 Engine, You need to Run a Large Turbo Even if You are Look for a Small Horsepower Gain, Because You Need to Have a Turbo that will Outflow the Engine at Higher RPM, so the Turbo Doesnt Become a Restriction to the Engine. With a V8 Engine You should be using 1 50mm External Wastegate or (2) 38mm Wastegates. Often the Reason Why People Use (2) External Wastegates is Because They are Using a Twin Scroll Manifold.

Keep in Mind that it isn’t Necessary to Run 2 External Wastegates with a Twinscroll Manifold. You Could use 1 External Wastegate on one side of the Divider, The Wastegate is on the Holsest are only Removing Air Pressure from 1 Scroll of the Turbine Housing From Factory

With all the Said, the Main Reason Why You Would Need a Larger Wastegate or 2 Wastegates is If you Have the Issue Where You Cannot Properly Control Boost. This issue is when Your reach full boost, and Your Wastegate is Wide Open, But Even with the Wastegate Wide Open the Boost Increases Past Your Boost Setting, Meaning that it Cannot Be Controlled Properly. This is Not a Spring issue Because the Wastegate Spring Selection is Based off You The Amount of Boost You Plan to Run. You can Read about Wastegate Spring Selection Here.

Common Wastegate Selections for Applications are:

2.0L or 2.3 liter 4 cylinder GT35r or 6262 or smaller : 38mm External Wastegate

2.0L or 2.3 4 cylinder T67, GT40r, GT42r or similar 44mm External Wastegate

2.5L 6 cylinder GT35R :38mm External Wastegate

v8 with T67 67mm Turbo: (2) 38mm External Wastegate or (1) 44mm or 50mm External Wastegate

Garrett GT3076R Turbine Housing .63 vs .82 vs 1.06 A/R

Garrett GT3076R .82 Turbine Housing Compare .63 vs .82 vs 1.06 and Buy Garrett GT3076R Turbine Housing. Choose the Correct Turbine Housing for Your GT3071R and GT3076R Here!

 

 

 

The GT3071R Turbine Housing Options Are Available in:

  • .63 a/r
  • .82 a/r
  • 1.06 a/r

I Highly Recommend the 1.06 a/r Turbine Housing for the GT3076R Turbo If you Have an Engine Larger than 2.0 liter 4 Cylinder Then Consider the 1.06 a/r. If you are Looking for Faster Spool Time or if You are Installing This Turbo On a Smaller engine than 2.0 Liter, Consider a .82  or .63 Turbine Housing 

The GT3076R Turbine Housing Options Are Available in:

  • .63 a/r
  • .82 a/r
  • 1.06 a/r

Choose Your Turbine Housing Based on Your Engine Size, Turbo Size, and Amount of Power You are Trying to Achieve.  

  • Smaller Turbine Housing = Faster Spool = Limited Peak Higher RPM HP
  • Larger Turbine Housing = Little Laggier depending on the Engine Size = Increase Peak Power at Higher RPM
  • NOTE: If you Chose a Turbine Housing Too Small for an Engine, Then the Engine Can Start to Outflow What the Turbo can Flow with the Size Turbine Housing You are Using At Higher RPM. This Causes the Power Level of the Engine to Feel Like It Cannot Pull Harder at Higher RPM (6500 RPM) and it Becomes Harder for the Turbo To Hold Higher Boost Levels at Higher RPM, Because The Amount of Air Cannot Disposed of Passed the Turbine in a Specific Time Frame (lb/min).

 

Here are my Recommendations:

  • 4 Cyl 1.6 liter > fast spool >Engine Rev Limit approx 7500 rpm>.63 a/r> 425 HP limit
  • 4 Cyl 1.6 liter > Little Laggier >High RPM >.82 a/r >500 HP limit (Highly Recommended)
  • 4 Cyl 2.0 liter > fast spool >High RPM >.82 a/r >500 HP limit (Highly Recommended)
  • 4 Cyl 2.0 liter > Little Laggier >High RPM >Run GT3076R>1.06 a/r >550 HP limit (Highly Recommended)
  • Larger that 4 cylinder 2.0> Go with 1.06 a/r > Consider going with a GT35R if you going for 600 HP

T3 Vband Outlet .82 a/r GT3071R Turbine Housing 55mm x 60mm

Here is are Upgrade Great Options for Garrett GT3071R Turbine Housings. 

First Measure Your turbine Shaft. These Housings are for the 55mm x 60mm GT3071R Turbine Shaft. This is the .82 a/r Turbine Housing.

 

 

 

The GT3071R Turbine Housing Options Are Available in:

  • .63 a/r
  • .82 a/r
  • 1.06 a/r

I Highly Recommend the .82 a/r Turbine Housing for the GT3071R Turbo, If you have a GT3076R  .82 a/r and the 1.06 a/r turbine Housing are Great Candidates. 

Choose Your Turbine Housing Based on Your Engine Size, Turbo Size, and Amount of Power You are Trying to Achieve.  

  • Smaller Turbine Housing = Faster Spool = Limited Peak Higher RPM HP
  • Larger Turbine Housing = Little Laggier depending on the Engine Size = Increase Peak Power at Higher RPM
  • NOTE: If you Chose a Turbine Housing Too Small for an Engine, Then the Engine Can Start to Outflow What the Turbo can Flow with the Size Turbine Housing You are Using At Higher RPM.

  • 4 Cyl 1.6 liter > fast spool >Engine Rev Limit approx 7500 rpm>.63 a/r> 425 HP limit
  • 4 Cyl 1.6 liter > Little Laggier >High RPM >.82 a/r >500 HP limit (Highly Recommended)
  • 4 Cyl 2.0 liter > fast spool >High RPM >.82 a/r >500 HP limit (Highly Recommended)
  • 4 Cyl 2.0 liter > Little Laggier >High RPM >Run GT3076R>1.06 a/r >550 HP limit (Highly Recommended)
  • Larger that 4 cylinder 2.0> Go with 1.06 a/r > Consider going with a GT35R if you going for 600 HP
