Default GS 44mm EWG on Turbo XS 4" DP

Does this work? I have heard the 38mm works, but I would really like to go with the 44mm preferably. Any info would be appreciated.

If not, is there anything else out there besides P&L that works?

Thanks!

Why do you feel the need for a 44? Or do you already have it

Thank you very much Kevin, you're the man.

And 44, well because I can. And it sounds/works better I hear.

umm sounds and works better are relative terms. you do realize larger wastegates are designed to hold relatively less boost right?

If you run the correct spring rate, you can run either or on pretty much any setup. I have seen 38mm and 44mm on high/low boost applications.

larger wastegates can flow more (bypass more exhaust from the turbine wheel) so they allow you to run lower spring rates without creep. But there are a lot of factors that go into wastegate flow requirements. The size of the gate really depends on the turbo, the boost level, the budget, fitment constraints, noise constraints, etc.

At what point do you classify less boost compared to more boost? What's a figure I can go buy?

Big Turbo/Low Boost = Bigger Wastegate
Big Turbo/High Boost = Smaller Wastegate
Small Turbo/High Boost = Smaller Wastegate
Small Turbo/Low Boost = Bigger Wastegate

Theoretically what if you over ran your 44mm waste gate? I think high and low boost needs to be defined.
