Custom VG30ET External Wastegate Setups

An ideal wastegate will precisely control boost at any level and keep boost stable in all conditions. External wastegates are generally considered better than internal gates because they (usually) do not cause turbulence for the air exiting the turbine and have larger ports and hence greater airflow capacity.

These are wastegate setup pictures submitted by people on the and message boards.
