In 2019 Turbosmart released their SEMA award-winning electronic wastegate (eWG) & this year we continue to build on that success, expanding the range to include both the CompGate40 - 40mm variant as well as the ProGate50 - 50mm variant.
The eWG electronic external wastegate range is built on the award-winning GenV external wastegate architecture which is truly modular, allowing interchangeable actuator housings between all body sizes & full 360-degree rotatable housings for limitless mounting, hose & wire routing.
The control strategy is shared across the entire GenV eWG range, requiring an H-Bridge control output most commonly used for electronic throttle bodies & include a valve position sensor & onboard temperature sensor for data logging and safety strategies.
The inclusion of the 40mm & 50mm variants, finalises the line-up of electronically controlled wastegates from 40mm all the way to 60mm ensuring there is no job too big, or small the eWG range can’t help with. Designed, tested and validated to 1300 degree C drive temperatures & leveraging the class-leading flow, thermal performance and fatigue resistance of the GenV range, you can be confident these will be with you in the winners circle!

Frequently Asked Questions
Will an eWG fit my existing manifold?
Yes. The Turbosmart eWG range works with the modular housings of the Gen-V products, so wherever your Turbosmart Gen-V products are fitted, the eWG will bolt on as they use the same mounting & flange orientation. The Actuator housings of the new eWG range are different though, so you’ll need to make sure there is room for the new design in your engine bay.
How fast is the eWG range?
72mm per second – Full travel can be achieved in 290ms. Fast.
What spring options does the eWG range have?
Just the one option: None. The Turbosmart eWG is fully adjustable without the need for springs. It can actuate boost against extreme levels of backpressure and does so without any springs. Nothing to change, ever. It also features a special ‘zero-back-drive’ to further bolster its ability against high drive pressures.
Can I use an eWG instead of my Compressed Gas (co2) setup?
Yes you can – In fact, it’s one of the situations that the eWG would be ideal for. You will not need the external compressed gas tank, the lines or the solenoid – You just need the eWG.
What do I need to control it?
You will need a programmable ECU (Engine Control Unit). You will need a ‘high current’ output and a spare analogue input for position (minimum) to make it work. Most quality ECU’s have the capability to drive the gate for accurate boost control using well under 20 Amp in current - Most applications are likely to use less than 14 Amp, however less refined boost control strategies may see high peak demands, under hi load (closing against hi drive pressure). Best speak to your specialist, or calibrator about your needs if you have any questions on what is needed.
Can I rotate the top housing?
Yes. The modular design of the GenV Range of External Wastegates means you can rotate the actuator housing 360 degrees, for virtually unlimited orientation.
How many wires does the eWG range Have?
The Turbosmart eWG Range all have 6 wires - That covers 2 wires for the Electronic Motor, to be driven via an H-Bridge outlet. The remaining cover the Onboard hi-resolution position sensor and onboard controller temperature sensor.
