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 GT2-project, 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 coordinate our engineering teams’ technical support and 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.”

Reviewing the Electronic Wastegate (eWG)

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 and control at the limits (max open, max closed). No other manufacturer has comparable electronic wastegates at more reasonable pricing.”
