Turbosmart’s e-WG45 and e-WG60 give you all the flow & interchangeability of Turbosmart’s Gen-V range of External wastegates, with the kind of control never seen before, independent of any reference signal, without the need for compressed gas or boost hoses and is fully adjustable from your tuning interface, no need for changing springs: Boost control is completely adjustable from your laptop.
In 2016, Turbosmart rolled out the Gen-V External wastegate range and one of the key benefits of this design is the modular architecture; allowing a rotatable diaphragm housing, optional water cooling and the ability to swap actuators housings between gate sizes, ensuring Turbosmart had a gate, for every customer need, no matter the size, or control requirements.

Mechanically actuated wastegates are truly tried and tested over the years. The Gen-V range particularly has proven itself in the harshest of environments and continues to set world records and claim fans with their reliability and performance. As boost control strategies become more and more complex however, Turbosmart went back to the drawing board for a solution that maintains all the performance & reliability of the Gen-V range and adds truly infinite control.
The Turbosmart e-WG operates on a current draw under 20amps while providing fast and efficient boost control against up to 80 psi drive pressure (e-WG60) and over 120 psi for the e-WG45. There is also an onboard rotary encoder for feedback and provision for optional water cooling.
TurboSmart’s new waste gates will be available in January 2020, with the following part numbers:
TS-0553-1502 – Gen-V eWG45 Hyper-Gate Electronic Black
TS-0555-1502 – Gen-V eWG60 Power-Gate60 Electronic Black
