Default overly complex IWG bracket

here is my over built bracket to hold my WG shut while running EWG. made of 303 SS + 6061

still have to make the bracket to turbo.

made the tie rod today.
hopefully the spring will keep its strength. its super strong (yz250 clutch spring)

the funny thing though is it probably would have taken several tries to make a crappy sheet metal one just right so it would hold. if you overkill things they CAN work first time if done right

Oh, I am not complaining at all, trust me. I appreciate the design and effort, I was attempting to be humorous, but I am also a Dad. We think our jokes are funny, not many others do though.....

good ol stainless
just going slow as hell is usually a good starting point, although a small diameter like that you can get away with some pretty high rpm

luckily 303 does not work harden too bad. it machines kinda more like mild steel. but 304 is an absolute beast to machine. eats drill bits for breakfast. i used to have to drill thousands of holes in SS to build cable railings at my last fab job. i would run the mill at minimum speed/very hard feed and keep the bit cooled and still would only get maybe 15-20 holes before having to sharpen them. band saws also don't like 304

yeah drilling is painful
just did some 17-4 ph on a lathe with no through tool coolant, just a hose, and had to drill 2.75 inches into a blind hole.
Numerous diameters, counterbores, radii, etc and the drilling was still 75% of the whole cycle.
I'd kill for through tool coolant.

great to see people invent new things, sad to see that big vendors are not doing **** or any RND. All they can do is scan oem part and make it out of better material .....

That is a great idea, but why would you use a spring where the gate could still open under boost?

Assuming a stiff enough spring......last ditch overboost safety? Or, maybe allows for some thermal dimensional changes without breaking things.

its plenty stiff enough to hold it closed no problem. my thinking is it always maintains tension. if it was a fixed distance it might be tight when cold but open up under heat or vice-versa. even the GS one is basically a spring. but they are using the "springyness" of the sheet metal instead of making the parts stiff and adding a spring into the mix.
