GenV High-Pressure External Wastegates: New Unique Appearance, GenV architecture, more options and more Boost!
Turbosmart continues to roll out the GenV Range overhaul, with their High Pressure (HP) Range updated and upgraded with the GenV modularity, improved thermal management, water cooling options and even more gate flow than ever before.
Releasing the hugely popular HP External Wastegate Range back in 2013, Turbosmart answered the needs of the diesel tuning community. The HP range found its place in several engine bays, even outside the diesel scene, cementing its place in the ever-growing Turbosmart catalogue where high base levels of boost are required.
The New GenV HP range from Turbosmart takes all the advances in design and engineering from the GenV External Wastegate range such as option water cooling, rotating housing, improved thermal management & industry-leading gate flow and ⅛ NPT reference ports and takes it all to new heights. The New GenV HP springs options mean as much as 50psi of base spring pressure!
Included in the box is the new GenV HP Wastegate with 35psi worth of pre-loaded springs (10psi Inner + 25psi outer), all inlet & outlet weld flanges, valve seat and clamps & the basic reference port fittings needed to get set up and running.

Frequently Asked Questions
Yes! The part number TS-0550-3109 does just that, allowing you to upgrade either a CompGate40 or HyperGate45 to HP spec. The only limitation is we’re only making the HP option in Black, so while it will physically fit on any colour, the top cap will have to be black if you’re after HP features.
Unfortunately No! The GenV architecture is unique as it was a ground-up development and has no parts in common with the previous version.
You will get a 10psi innerspring and a 25 psi outer spring. This is the same combination when buying a full HP product off the shelf.
You effectively have 5 options; 10psi, 25psi, 35psi, 40psi & 50psi with the use and combination of just 3 springs. And remember, this is just base mechanical spring pressure. Much higher levels of boost can be achieved with some boost control or reference manipulation.
Almost – While the 10psi & 25psi come pre-fitted in the gate, there is an optional 40psi spring (TS-0550-3112) available as an accessory.
How much do you get? All setups are different and to answer this question, it’s best to acknowledge how much exhaust back pressure impacts boost control. On an efficient setup, you should be able to achieve between 2 and 3 times the base mechanical spring pressure. However, if you’re really working a turbo, efficiency tends to drop off and back-pressure rises making things a lot harder. It really does come down to your combination.
Not necessarily. The Water cooling feature is there simply as an option. The Gen-V architecture provides class-leading thermal management so it’s our experience most users will never need it. Its there in case you’re one of the chosen few finding the limits though.
