GenV External Wastegate Range
The GenV External Wastegate Range from Turbosmart has been around since its release at SEMA 2017. When the ground up range re-design hit the market, each gate was optimized for industry-leading flow, fatigue & heat resistance, ensuring if you had yourself a GenV External Wastegate, you had the smallest, lightest, most reliable and resilient external wastegate for your application.
Industry-leading Flow & Performance
In 2020 Turbosmart will continue to expand on the GenV range introducing the HyperGate45 Lite. The HyperGate45 Lite retains the HyperGate45’s industry-leading flow and thermal performance while using a smaller actuator housing for increased fitment opportunities in modern, cramped engine bays. This reduced overall size & weight does incur a penalty in terms of control. However, it is a small price to pay if real estate in your engine bay is limited. Refer Image above, where the HyperGate45 (in Red) sits next to the Hyerpgate45 Lite (in Black).
Why is Actuator Size Important?
Think about it in terms of leverage: A large spanner or wrench versus a short one. The larger one gives you leverage and means you can do more work with more control, and the shorter one requires more effort and provides less control. The same goes for the actuator size relative to the size of your wastegate valve. The GenV range of actuators is carefully matched to valve size to meet an extremely capable ratio for unbeatable wastegate control.
The HyperGate45 Lite features the small frame actuator housing of our motorsport proven 45mm CompGate 45 range, with the CFD driven and marketing leading flow of the HyperGate45 body that takes advantage of the modular nature of the Turbosmart GenV Wastegate range. Refer to Technical Drawings below. You can easily see the height difference (109mm vs 116mm) and the actuator width (75mm vs 84mm).
The GenV HyperGate45 Range is available in various actuator specifications, including Standard, Motorsport, Compressed Gas, High Pressure, Positions Sensor Options and Electronic. Check out the full range on our website to ensure you have the right valve for the job, and don’t hesitate to reach out if you require any other information.
Frequently Asked Questions
The Turbosmart GenV range is designed around industry and peer flange orientation. If you have a valve of similar size, it’s likely we have a valve that swaps right in. If in any doubt, please contact us and ask, we’re only too happy to help.
All GenV External Wastegates from Turbosmart are liquid cooled. That doesn’t have to mean water or coolant by the way, there are other liquids in your driveline you can use – That’s up to you. But yes, like the normal HyperGate45’s, the HyperGate45’s still incorporates optional liquid cooling.
In ‘normal’ applications, your wastegate can run 2-3 times base mechanical spring pressure with boost control and manipulation of the reference signal if asked to. With the reduced actuator housing size of the HyperGate45 Lite, this will be reduced. Your application will depend on how much but expect approximately two times base pressure instead of 3.
Yes, absolutely. Rotating housing, liquid cooling provision, industry-leading flow and fatigue resistance and composite thermal insulation, Stainless Strap Band clamps are all featured across the range, including the HyperGate45 Lite.
