It has received support from the biggest ECU names in the industry as a highly tunable and very capable motorsport upgrade.

Turbosmart UK General Manager Ben Lawson commented “I have been a huge fan of the X-BOW and KTM brand for many years so when approached to assist with the theGT2project, I was excited by the opportunity of working with such an innovative brand and knew that the eWG would provide the performance the team were looking for. The communication throughout has proven to be vital in the project-knowing that the project was a time-sensitive one, we were able to co-ordinate our engineering teams technical support along with feedback received from the developers fast and efficiently, whilst also ensuring a smooth product supply process through our local distribution network. It has been a great project to work on and I very much look forward to the future together.”

KTM X-BOW GT2 Developer Bernhard Ehrlich commented “As we have been working with electronic wastegates for some years now, the Turbosmart eWG is easy to set up! From our point of view, the Turbosmart product has a good speed of position changes as well as control at the limits (max open, max closed). No other manufacturer has comparable electronic wastegates at more reasonable pricing.”

As an approved series supplier to the KTM X-BOW GT2, the eWG will be put through its paces in some of the most competitive racing across the world. We can’t wait to see the podiums rolling in!
