    Lame. If you need a legit one, go here:

    Tial Wastegates : Kronos Performance, Leading since 6th Century BC

    If you need one that isn't a V-Band style, let me know.

    If your Wastegate is connecting to your up-pipe, then it should be a V-Band style. I haven't seen anyone sell an Up-Pipe that doesn't use a MV-S or MV-R

    V-Band is a type of clamp. Instead of it bolting on to a manifold or pipe, it has a very tight clamp...makes it easier to remove if need be instead of seized bolts.
