    Why did you just buy an external wastegate if you have done no further research? You are going to need to be able to plumb it properly as well as getting a custom tune.

    Judging by previous posts, OP is either a massive troll.. or someone that knows nothing about cars, does no research about anything, and likes to throw money away.

    Give the guy a break. I'm sure your wisdom far exceeds most of ours, but no need to talk down on someone. Help him out if able, or overlook the post if its that upsetting to you.

    The first two replies sum it up pretty well. I could understand asking a question about plumbing the wastegate... or issues with the wastegate... but if you have to ask where it goes - it's time to do some research on it.

    If you go on any of the larger part vendors websites and check out "EWG", you can quickly piece together that it comes with way more than just a wastegate.

    I'm not talking down to anyone. .I never said there's anything wrong with knowing nothing about cars, we were all there at one point, I just feel like we're being trolled here. I find it hard to believe that someone would actually spend several hundred (thousands if you read previous threads) of dollars on things that they don't even know what they are or how they work.

    Looking at OP's comment history I have to agree with Mainframe.

    I'm happy to help explain things to a newb. .but I don't enjoy waisting my time on a troll. I just feel at this point some clarification would be nice before moving forward with lengthy explanations.

    No worries. .I can agree that my comment was rude, but come on!



    To the OP if you're truly serious don't let me run you off, but please take the time to research and at least attempt to understand how things work before handing your money over. .or just enlist someone that knows what they're doing in the first place.
