IMPORTANT NOTES ON YOUR EXTERNAL WASTEGATE  
-
Turbosmart accepts no responsibility whatsoever for incorrect installation of this product which is potentially hazardous and can cause serious  
engine damage or personal injury.  
-
-
The Gen V external wastegate is designed for use with a turbocharger that does not have an internal wastegate.  
Consult your local specialist before setting your desired boost pressure, setting boost beyond your engines capability may result in engine  
damage.  
-
Use only high-quality fittings ensuring maximum sealing reliability. Optional Turbosmart fitting kit available.  
RECOMMENDATIONS  
-
-
-
-
Allow for adequate cool airflow around the top diaphragm housing  
DO NOT Mount the wastegate so that the top diaphragm housing is less than 100mm from a heat source  
DO NOT wrap the body of the wastegate with exhaust wrap  
Fitting your Gen V wastegate may require fabrication or modification to your exhaust manifold. Turbosmart recommends that your  
wastegate is fitted by an appropriately qualified technician.  
-
Turbosmart recommends that the engines Air/Fuel ratio is checked while setting the desired boost pressure, as any increase in  
boost pressure can cause the engine to run “LEAN”, resulting in possible engine damage.  
Turbosmart recommends that boost pressure is set using a dynamometer and not on public roads.  
Turbosmart recommends that a boost gauge be permanently fitted to the vehicle.

WHAT IS AN EXTERNAL WASTEGATE  
What is a wastegate  
Internal or external, a wastegate is a boost-controlling device that operates by limiting exhaust gases going through the turbocharger,  
controlling the maximum boost pressure produced by the turbocharger itself. A wastegate consists of an inlet and outlet port, a valve  
and a pressure actuator.  
How a wastegate works  
A pressure actuator, controlled by boost pressure determines whether the wastegate is open or shut. In its resting position, a  
wastegate is shut, and as the boost pressure builds, force is applied to the actuator. When the boost pressure exceeds the spring  
value, the actuator will progressively open the wastegate, bypassing some of the exhaust gases therefore maintaining the boost  
pressure at the set level. To put it simply a wastegate prevents the boost pressure from climbing indefinitely and consequently  
blowing the engine.  
When is an external wastegate required?  
Most of the factory turbo systems feature an internal wastegate made to handle stock boost levels. The most common reason for  
investing in an external wastegate is fitting an after-market turbo or better control of the boost and consequently the power output of  
your engine. Additionally, most large frame turbochargers are not equipped with internal wastegate systems.  
Most tuners will recommend an external wastegate for any engine producing 400hp or more, as running high boost through a factory  
internal wastegate can overpower the actuator spring, limiting maximum boost level. Aftermarket external wastegates feature bigger  
inlet and outlet ports, higher pressure springs and bigger actuator diaphragms to effectively control high boost pressure.  
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------  
WHAT’S NEW  
Our new wastegates are a direct fit upgrade to all 4th-generation Turbosmart wastegates and feature our unique collar-locking system,  
variable actuator cap and base, strap-type V-band clamps, liquid-cooling, 1/8″ NPT ports, and are provided with a range of springs.  
They are also available in Motorsport and compressed gas-only versions for those requiring specific applications.  
Modular  
The 5th series wastegate range has been designed for maximum user-adjustability, without compromising performance. We designed  
our new unit to allow actuators to be interchangeable across the range. So, if you need a large wastegate in a tight space you can  
run a smaller actuator on the larger body. Additionally, if you decide to upgrade your new wastegate to a motorsport or compressed  
gas-only actuator you can with an upgrade kit.  
Adjustability  
The unique variable adjustment design allows the wastegate actuator base to be oriented independently from the weld flanges. The  
cap is also completely independent and indexable in 12 different positions compared to the actuator base and body. This allows the  
wastegate to be fitted in confined positions without compromising packaging for fittings or aligning the cap.  
Upgrades and Servicing  
Due to the modular construction, the new range is also upgradeable and completely serviceable, as all components can be removed  
or upgraded. Components have been tested for over one million cycles so reliability will be rock-solid.  
Flow and Thermal Performance  
Our new range of wastegates out-flow all competitors thanks to our world-leading engineering and simulation abilities. Thermal  
performance has been improved drastically compared to our nearest rival, and all wastegates feature liquid cooling ports for further  
thermal performance if required  
Control  
For fine-tuning, boost performance, a selection of springs will be supplied with each wastegate. All wastegates feature 1/8″ NPT ports  
for maximum response and flow while maintaining a high level of compatibility for fittings.

The Gen V series of wastegate is a direct fit replacement for the  
th

gen wastegate range and no modification is necessary  
provided packaging space is sufficient.  
Turbine  
The weld flanges should be welded to your exhaust system. The  
weld flanges are compatible with Stainless Steel and Mild steel  
welding rod material.  
For best results an attempt should be made, if space allows, to  
mount the Gen V Wastegate at an angle to the exhaust flow to  
allow for better flow than a 90 degree mounting. See the  
schematic diagrams below for examples of mounting positions.  
Exhaust flow  
from engine  
CAUTION!  
Do not place the actuator cap near a significant heat source  
as this could shorten the life of the diaphragm.  
Figure 6 - 90 Degree mounting  
0 Degree mounting gives poor exhaust flow to the wastegate  
and in some circumstances may contribute to over boosting.

Prior to mounting the Gen V Wastegate, place v-band over weld  
on flange by unscrewing the nut on the v-band as far out as  
possible and then squeezing the bolt in a syringe motion to  
expand the v-band (squeeze the dots together below). Once the  
v-band is in its fully expanded position, slide the v-band over the  
flange to allow for the wastegate to be installed.

Do not forget to put the valve seat into the body before mounting  
the unit on the exhaust manifold. Using the 3/8” deep socket and  
a torque wrench Tighten the V-Band to 7N.m (5 ft/lbs). Ensure  
the wastegate is home correctly while torqueing the nut to not  
have a false torque as this will likely contribute to exhaust leaks.  
Angle mounting allows a good flow of exhaust flow to the  
wastegate.

Basic setup  
If no boost controller is being used connect the boost pressure  
source to the “bottom” port as shown. The boost only pressure  
source should be sourced from as close to the compressor side  
of the turbo as possible. The “top” ports of the wastegate should  
be left open, It is possible in harsh environments to blank one  
port and connect a hose to the other port that can be ran to a  
area less likely to allow contamination into the actuator.  
CAUTION!  
Do NOT source signal from the intake manifold as this is subject  
to vacuum and pressure losses across the system and could  
over-speed the turbocharger.

Fit lower chamber port fittings prior to mounting the wastegate,  
install 1/8” NPT blank with 3/16” hex key and signal nipple into  
lower chamber ports. Port order or orientation is not important,  
select which suits your packaging requirements. Apply thread  
lubricant and screw in clockwise until finger tight, then tighten  
further 1-2 turns for seal.  
Congratulations, your Gen V wastegate is installed and ready for  
use. Double check all fittings, lines and mountings then proceed  
to start engine and check for leaks.  
NOTE!  
If you are unsure which port to install fittings into, please  
refer to ‘Boost Control Hookup’ section, refer to table of  
contents for page number.  
CAUTION!  
Do NOT insert fittings and blank into Top Ports unless  
advanced boost control methods are to be used as this can  
affect the performance of the product. See ‘Boost Control

ACHIEVING YOUR TARGET BOOST PRESSURE  
There are various factors involved in achieving your target boost pressure including.  
-
-
-
The size of the spring fitted in your wastegate i.e. the boost pressure achieved by the wastegate spring only.  
The desired level of boost pressure and the difference between this and your wastegate spring pressure.  
The size of your turbocharger and wastegate and the resulting exhaust manifold backpressure in your system.  
Turbosmart recommends the ideal setup for achieving your target boost pressure is to use the Gen V Wastegate in conjunction with  
a Turbosmart e-Boost controller.

BOOST CONTROL HOOKUP ON THE GEN V WASTEGATE  
WARNING!  
Changing your connection method can cause a higher than expected increase in boost pressure. Turbosmart recommends  
adjusting your boost controller back to its minimum setting and measuring the new minimum boost pressure achieved by  
the new setup before increasing your boost again.  
IMPORTANT!  
Refer to your boost controller instructions for most suitable connection method to an external wastegate  
Boost Tee Setup  
1
When using your Gen V wastegate in conjunction with a Turbosmart Boost Tee, fit the controller between the boost pressure source  
and “bottom” port as shown. Ensure the arrow on the Boost Tee is pointing towards the wastegate. The “top” ports of the wastegate  
should be left open, It is possible in harsh environments to blank one port and connect a hose to the other port that can be run into a  
area less likely to allow contamination into the actuator. Refer to the instructions supplied with your Boost Tee for further detail if  
necessary.

e-Boost 2 Connection Methods  
2
Turbosmart recommends using the Gen V Wastegate in conjunction with the Turbosmart e-Boost. The first method of installation is  
a one port connection. If the desired boost level is not achieved i.e. boost level is too low, or not controllable, it is recommended that  
the wastegate spring be changed to a spring which is closer to the desired boost pressure or to trial a 2 port connection method.  
There are 3 different 2 port connection methods that can be trialled to achieve different results. The 2 port method (1) can be used if  
there is high exhaust manifold back pressure forcing the valve open. The 2 port method (2) allows the user to achieve the maximum  
boost pressure their turbo system is capable of. If a wide range of boost pressures is desired i.e. 5 40 PSI, a 2 port connection with  
a 4 port solenoid (sold separately TS-0301-2003) might be needed. All unused ports and vents must have the pressure nipple  
installed and a piece of silicon connected and routed to an area which is shielded from dust and water.

ADVANCED FEATURES ON THE GEN V WASTEGATE  
ADVANCED, Orientation of the Actuator  
CAUTION!  
Turbosmart does NOT recommend altering to position of the  
actuator once the wastegate has been used.  
1
Turbosmart provide the Gen V wastegate with the actuator ports  
symmetrical to the centreline of the body, in some applications it  
may be advantages to clock the actuator to allow clearance for  
fittings and hoses.  
It is recommended that the actuator be clocked without a  
valve seat installed to prevent twisting the diaphragm.

Locate the slave collar between the actuator and the body  
underneath the heatshield, A tab on the heatshield will be folded  
down into a groove on this collar. Using a flat blade screwdriver,  
pry this tab out of the groove allowing the collar to be loosened.  
Using the small end of the supplied collar tool undo the slave  
collar 1 complete revolution (anti-clockwise as viewed from the  
bottom). One tab on the heatshield at the back of the wastegate  
is folded up to locate on the actuator, rotate the actuator to  
desired location ensuring the folded tab aligns with a groove in  
the bottom of the actuator. It is possible to fold down this tab and  
use another if the actuator cannot be positioned correctly on the  
original tab.

Tighten the collar using a torque wrench on the 3/8” square drive  
provided in the collar tool perpendicular to the length of the tool  
to 25N.m (18ft/lbs). Fold down a tab onto the slave collar to  
prevent the collar from coming loose during use.  
Water Cooling

Turbosmart’s Gen V wastegate is equipped with water cooling  
ports to keep the wastegate cool in the most extreme conditions  
and keep consistent actuator temperature.  
Identify the water cooling ports on the bottom of the actuator  
adjacent to the water cooling symbol engraved in the actuator.  
Port order is not important and may be reversed.

HOW TO INSTALL A SENSOR CAP TO YOUR GEN V WASTEGATE  
CAUTION!  
-
-
-
Ensure diaphragm is contained within the groove prior to cap re-assembly.  
Pay attention not to rotate diaphragm.  
Cool air flow is required around the actuator to keep the sensor in its operating window.  
Remove Wastegate from Manifold  
1
Remove boost pressure source hose from the wastegate as  
well as the breather hose is fitted. Unscrew outlet V-Band nut  
in a anti-clockwise direction to the very end of the thread,  
Squeeze the nut against the V-Band in a syringe like motion  
to expand the V-band over the flange. Repeat for inlet V-Band.  
Remove Gen V wastegate being careful not to lose the valve  
seat. Mark the orientation of the valve to the body with tape or  
a paint pen.  
CAUTION!  
Allow engine to cool down before removing your Gen V  
wastegate  
Remove Top Cap

Diaphragm Replacement  
2
Prior to removing the Gen V wastegate cap, remove all fittings  
from the 1/8”NPT ports. Press down on the cap in a press or  
vice. Unscrew locking collar with the large end of the provided  
collar tool in an anti-clockwise direction until completely  
disengaged and slowly remove tension from the press or vice  
allowing the spring to expand, finally remove cap when the  
spring has stopped expanding.  
Use the supplied tool in the diaphragm replacement kit,  
engage the diaphragm aligning the splines and grooves. Use  
a 25mm spanner on the tool to prevent the diaphragm from  
spinning. Use a 12point 14mm socket through the centre of  
this tool onto the valve retaining cap. Undo the valve retaining  
.  
CAUTION!  
Use soft jaws to prevent damage

Familiarise Yourself with Cap and Body  
Notches

Locate cap and body notches and grooves which dictate the  
alignment of the cap. These notches are used to locate the  
cap onto the body and must be aligned prior to compression  
of the cap onto the body  
Loctite 243  
CAUTION!  
Ensure notches are aligned and seated home correctly  
prior to exerting force to tighten collar, permanent  
damage will occur if these are not aligned correctly.

Once the cap has seated home onto the bod, screw the collar  
down by hand in a clockwise direction. While still in the press  
or vice, Tighten the collar further with the collar tool until the  
collar will not turn.  
CAUTION!  
Maintain downward pressure on cap while tightening  
collar or non-repairable thread damage will occur.  
Take care not to damage the wire during assembly.  
Align the valve orientation marks and confirm the diaphragm  
bead is seated in the groove of the actuator. Install desired  
spring combination.  
Configure Wastegate with preferred spring combination of  
inner, middle and outer springs

Place v-band over weld on flange by unscrewing the nut on  
the v-band as far out as possible and then squeezing the bolt  
in a syringe motion to expand the v-band (squeeze the dots  
together below). Once the v-band is in its fully expanded  
position, slide the v-band over the flange to allow for the  
wastegate to be installed.  
Connect the wires to your data logger accordingly. Use a high-  
quality connection to reduce noise and calibration fluctuation.  
Ensure that the wiring is properly shielded from external heat  
sources.  
CAUTION!  
To ensure longevity from the sensor, ensure adequate  
airflow is supplied directly to the sensor to avoid  
overheating or sensor failure.  
Turbosmart HE sensor has an operation temperature  
window of -40C up to 170ºC (340ºF) junction temperature,  
for temperatures outside of this window the VOUT will  
revert to less than 2.5V  
Temperature exposure above 260ºC (500ºF) can cause  
permanent damage to the sensor.  
CAUTION!  
Do not forget to place valve seat into the body before  
mounting the wastegate on the exhaust manifold. Use a  
3
/8” deep socket and torque the V-Band to 7N.m (5 ft/lbs)

TROUBLE SHOOTING  
-
Wastegate not actuating - Confirm signal hose is plumbed to a pressure only source, confirm preload on valve seat during  
installation  
-
Poor wastegate actuation - Ensure signal hose is not shared and is sourced as close to the compressor as possible, check seal  
on fittings  
-
-
-
Poor wastegate actuation - Confirm Top ports are not blocked and free from debris  
Boost creeping at high rpm - Wastegate flow path is poor, wastegate is too small for the application  
Failing the above, submit a technical request to [email protected] with information of your engine configuration and  
photos of installation
