Hello all the sifus,

I have been hearing alot of Thailand wastegates for sale at very interesting prices. Does anyone have any experience using such wastegates? Is it good, bad or downright ugly??

Cheers!!

1 original tial wg 38mm selling 990 completely new
1 thai trust wg 35mm selling 350 looks like old

personally used thai boost at .9 bar, 2 weeks diaphram kong, to replace 180 not including installation.

let say a 1st i buy a thai at 350, 2 weeks kong spend another 180, and 2 months kong spend another 180 and then 6 months kong another 180.

total will be 350+180+180+180=890 not including installation charges.

might as well i buy tial 990 one time no hassle.

Bro,


Sorry to hear that. 0.9 bar of boost and the WG's fark? wow. that is really crappy.

Was this recently or a long time ago. Coz I just spoke to one ZTH forum guy yesterday who sells these wastegates and he said that the older thailand WG's do not last. He noted that the newer ones are a lot more realiable . Not too sure what he is saying is true that is why I wanted to hear from all you guys on your experiences with the Thai wastegates.

So sorry to heard bout what happened to you. I guess that is how we learn right?

cheers!!

ZTH members,

Any further experieences?

Thai wastegate quality not consistent.

Some people using for quite some time without problem.

But some people used for short period only and diaphram kaput-ed.

Bro,

So what u are saying is that this is a no go? Invest in a branded WG would be better? The price diff is rather significant i.e RM 420 for a 40 mm Thailand WG vs RM 1K plus for a 40mm Trial?
