Shelby Charger broken wastegate actuator

Figured out that my wastegate actuator on my Dodge Shelby Charger was broken which was why I was only stuck at 4psi, no matter what I set my Manual Boost Controller to.

Redneck turbo wastegate actuator BUILD YOUR OWN!
Tune a Wastegate. Part of the jeep turbo project is the idea of reliability and a big component of that is low Boost pressures. I could tell I was too high during the testing and rather than buying a new actuator I have decided to cut my down. It is a very simple modification project for anyone with a few tools. Be sure to follow along as I work the kinks out of my turbocharged F head project.

Knockoff TiAL MVS Tested
Video testing the durability of a knockoff TiAL wastegate, the wastegate was broken right out of the box (wouldn't hold pressure) and the unit could not be installed if the valve seat was inserted because of poor machining - so in truth the wastegate could not have been used on a car at all. The video is at 8x speed, the video is 47 min long compressed into about 6 min. the wastegate only lasted a bit over 42 min on the test bench - around 6,200 cycles.





Diagnosis of Massive Air Leak at Turbocharger Wastegate Actuator
This video shows the diagnosis of a gross air leak at the diaphragm of the turbocharger's wastegate actuator on a customer's 1990 Eagle Talon TSi AWD with 4G63T. This vehicle had been built by some people that were supposedly known for these vehicles. If so, they should have caught this easily. The vehicle had also been to one other shop prior to coming to Street Sports for diagnosis.





How to change Turbocharger wastegate actuator
Ebay Shop - http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Nerings How to change turbocharger wastegate actuator? How to change turbocharger actuator? How to change turbo actuator? The simplest closed-loop control for a wastegate is to supply Boost pressure directly from the charge air side to the wastegate actuator. A small hose can connect from the turbocharger compressor outlet, charge pipes, or intake manifold to the nipple on the wastegate actuator. The wastegate will open further as the Boost pressure pushes against the force of the spring in the wastegate actuator until equilibrium is obtained. More intelligent control can be added by integrating an electronic Boost controller. Standard wastegates have one port for attaching the Boost control line from the charge air supply line or Boost control solenoid. This is the most common configuration and the only type of configuration found on internal wastegates. A dual port wastegate adds a second port on the opposite side of the actuator. Air pressure allowed to enter this second port aids the spring to push harder in the direction of closing the wastegate. This is exactly the opposite of the first port. The ability to help the wastegate remain closed as Boost pressure builds can be increased. This also adds further complexity to Boost control, requiring more control ports on the solenoid or possibly a complete second Boost control system with its own separate solenoid. Use of the second port is not necessary. Secondary ports, unlike primary ports, cannot be simply attached to a Boost control line and require electronic or manual control to be useful. C02 can also be used to apply pressure to the second port, to control Boost on a much finer level. A wastegate is a valve that diverts Exhaust gases away from the turbine wheel in a turbocharged engine system. Diversion of Exhaust gases regulates the turbine speed, which in turn regulates the rotating speed of the compressor. The primary function of the wastegate is to regulate the maximum Boost pressure in turbocharger systems, to protect the engine and the turbocharger. One advantage of installing a remote mount wastegate to a free-float (or non-WG) turbo includes allowance for a smaller A/R turbine housing, resulting in less lag time before the turbo begins to spool and create Boost

ipd Volvo Turbo 102 Tech Talk
Ipd shows you how to adjust your wastegate with our new wastegate adjustment tool. This video also covers Boost control strategy for 1994 and later Volvo models.





How to adjust / pre load wastegate actuator
1. Remove C clip on the waste gate arm 2. Undo the nut that holds the rod extender. 3. Rotate the actuator extender clock wise so shorten overall length. 4. The actuator rod should be half hole length short to the wastegate arm when waste gate is fully shut. 5. Pull the actuator extender towards the Exhaust side and securer the extender. 6. Fit the C clip back to waste gate arm. 7. Tighten the extender nut. Job done





How to check a wastegate to make sure it functions properly
We are out to prove that the ebay turbo's are just as reliable as the big name turbo's. One consistent issue with them is that the wastegates on them need to be moved and tested before installation. Note that the wastegate arm should not be TOTALLY loose as shown in the video. This is shown in the video just to show the difference between how it was before when it wouldn't open the wastegate and after, when it's been adjusted. This is how to do it.
