The GenV External Wastegate Range from Turbosmart has been around since its release at SEMA 2017. When the ground up range re-design hit the market, each gate was optimized for industry leading flow, fatigue & heat resistance ensuring if you had yourself a GenV External Wastegate, you had the smallest, lightest, most reliable and resilient external wastegate for the your application.
In 2020 Turbosmart continue to expand on the GenV range introducing the HyperGate45 Lite. The HyperGate45 Lite retains the HyperGate45’s industry leading flow and thermal performance, while using a smaller actuator housing for increased fitment opportunities in modern, cramped engine bays. This reduced overall size & weight does incur a penalty in terms of control, however it is a small price to pay if real estate in your engine bay is limited. Refer Image above where the HyperGate45 (in Red), sits next to the Hyerpgate45 Lite (in Black).
Why is actuator size important? Think about it in terms of leverage: A large spanner or wrench versus a short one. The larger one gives you leverage and means you can do more work, with more control. The shorter requires more effort and provides less control. Same goes for the actuator size, relative to the size of your wastegate valve. The GenV range of actuators is carefully matched to valve size to meet an extremely capable ratio for unbeatable wastegate control.
