Is your wastegate blowing open?
Solve the problem with a High-Performance Wastegate Actuator!
- Larger Diaphragm Size
- Stronger Spring
- 2-Year Ltd. Warranty
This high-performance wastegate will keep the valve seated longer in diesels with performance modifications. The benefits include higher boost levels throughout the powerband, a higher overall peak boost level, quicker spool-up and increased torque. This is the perfect addition to any performance module, air intake or exhaust system.
When turbo exhaust backpressure increases, the stock actuator prematurely blows off the seat, softening boost in the midrange and killing torque. With twice the diaphragm area and spring pressure of the stock wastegate, Banks BigHead Wastegate Actuator keeps the valve seated longer and achieves a higher peak boost, sooner. At peak, BigHead opens the wastegate and holds its position, for precise boost control that gives you crisp acceleration and more mid-range pulling power.
Note: Designed to work with the stock turbo only.
