Re: external wastegate!!!!! help me out (turbo1point8GTI)

edit: ^Stop the madness!^ LOL at the "WOO WOO WOO" pic posted by Alec and promptly sh**canned by the mods...go to the Car Lounge and look for "ghetto" in the thread title for a good laugh!

A custom made 321 (or better) stainless WG exhaust pipe that ties back into the main exhaust behind the cat. Too much back pressure ahead of the cat for an external WG exhaust pipe.
...or ditch the cat and have a short pipe run for the WG. Use a Tial WG. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

the wastegate is integrated into the turbo, so its not on the manifold. basically you'll have to find a manifold for the 1.8T that has an external wastegate and get a new turbo too. not to mention the wastegate as well. what do you want the Ext WG for?
