Finally found something that will work with these turbos, being they are vacuum, it's been a fun time finding anything. I'll get some pics here in a bit.
I've always been curious about how well the flapper style internal wastegates work. I have to assume a tight seal isn't overly critical, but I wonder if the slider type wouldn't help spool a little quicker, assuming the flapper type does indeed leak at 100% duty cycle. I don't see it running at 100% duty cycle very often other than initial spool up, though, so I don't know if there would be much benefit once you're into the power. I feel like these tiny turbos would blow apart or burn up pretty quickly if they were run at 100% duty cycle for very long at higher rpm. I'm totally speculating, though.I'm not looking to gain a lot, more of a experiment you could say since I'm Finally putting the 3.0 chargers on mine. Yeah, there listed, just not on the car, LOL.
