    1st.....if u r boosting high, external w/gate is useful tool to control the boost.if u r running standard boost, actuator can handle. but u can always put the external one....no harm.

    my preference is Tial. careful with Trust...got thai clone.

    u mean u already got an external w/gate? what brand?

    0.9 consider low boost and actuator can still handle bbost pressure. external w/gate can hold boost more precise&consistence....thus avoiding boost spike.u know already that wastegate purpose is to control boost & channel excessive exhaust gas right?

    very syok listening to the sound of external w/gate when on full boost... more boost,more loud .hihi.
