Engineering porn!

It looks gourgeous, but how is it better than a mass marketed wastegate?

it's better bc he did it himself :drool:

It's probably better for a lot of reasons. The tolerances are better, so it seals better. It probably flows better than a mass produced wastegate, and the response is likely better. And it looks cool.

JGS3SGE, are you Lance from JGS Tools?

very well done :bigthumbu

looks beautiful. just curious, does jgs still sell ct26 > t3 adapters or have pics anywhere on the site?

not to take away any buisness from you at all, but 935motorsports.com has had CT26 to T3 flanges for a long time. Both twin entry and non.

What type of testing have you done with your design? What are the gains compared to any other external aftermarket wastegate out there? Looks very nice though.

Hey Lance, good to see you again!

Are you doing the engraving on the body with a full 4-axis machining center or is it done with rotary positioning only? Just curious, I'm doing some 3 axis stuff and I've had to turn down some stuff like that because I lack the 4th axis.

I have one of your 'EL' manifolds for the 7A. The car will hopefully be up and running before the end of feb. Unfortunately I haven't had much time to work on it. I'll post pics of the DP and exhaust once I get them built.

Tell me this, whats the lowest amount of boost you've ran with this better flowing wastegate? Have you compared that number to your competitors? Bigger wastegate, lower boost.

Also, are you planning on rerouting this back into the exhaust, or are you going to just dump it? Video clips please on the SRT-4 and celica :D :D

Ahhh, you have the ONLY 4 into 1 7AFE manifold I ever made :D
The lettering is done with 4th axis positioning... it is however a full 4 axis machine, our software is our draw-back... 9Gs for full 3D Gibbscam :eek:
I'm working on a B.F.W V-band 50mm wastegate next...:hehe:


We've got the full Pro/E Pro/NC package. It's more than a little frustrating at times, but it does things that the others can't as far as associativity with the models. That looks like a really nice part. I can't wait to see how things go!
