Log In Remember Me? All All Threads Posts Advanced. Wastegate and blow off valve hookup howto. I need help understanding how the blow off valve hook up and blow off valve hookups work so I don't goof them. I'll start with the wastegate. It has one barbed hookup on the side pic below. I imagine that goes to a boost reference so it knows when to open and allow exhaust gases to bypass the turbo.
The nipple directly on the turbo? Then to further complicate things I have the boost controller solenoid with the Hondata S I see it has three hookups on the solenoid. I valvd plan on running more than 10 lbs of boost since the internals of my motor are stock so does that mean I put a 10 lb spring in there and use the S to run anything less like say 5 lbs?
Next that brings up the blow off valve. I understand it's there so when you let off the throttle blocking the boosted air's air flow it doesn't cause a sudden back pressure on the turbo. I see on top you can adjust it harder or softer. Or does that have anything to do the pressure at which it will blow off? It also has two hookups.
After thinking about it for vlow while I'm thinking one hose goes on each side of the throttle body? Do I need to make adjustments to the BOV too? Thanks so much for any help or pointers. Doesnt the vacuum line go into the top of the wastegate for the boost controller for a more accurate reading, and the side nipple plugs into the turbo? WHAT A WASTEGATE IS Internal or external, a wastegate is a boost-controlling device that operates by limiting exhaust gases odf 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 or diaphram for an external gatecontrolled by boost pressure determines whether the wastegate is open or shut. Hlow its resting position, a wastegate is shut, and as the boost pressure builds, force is applied to the actuator or diaphram. When the boost pressure boundaries in dating epub the spring value, the blow off valve hook up will progressively open the wastegate, bypassing some of the exhaust gases therefore maintaining the boost pressure at the set level.
Put simply — a wastegate prevents the boost pressure from climbing indefinitely and consequently blowing the engine. Why an External wastegate may be needed Most tuners will recommend an external wastegate for any engine producing hp or more, as running high boost through a factory internal wastegate can overpower the actuator spring, limiting maximum boost level.
Aftermarket external wastegates valv bigger inlet and outlet ports, higher pressure springs and bigger actuator diaphragms to effectively control high boost pressure. Wastegate diagram BLOW OFF VALVE A blow off valve, also referred to as a dump, bypass, or a pop off valve, is a vacuum-activated pressure relief valve. A typical BOV consists of an inlet and outlet port, a piston, a spring and a vacuum connection point. A perfect example of this is during on boost gear changes.
Without a BOV, upon shutting the throttle, the pressurised air caught between the free-spinning turbo and the shut throttle is forced back through the turbine blades, this, in turn, forces the turbine to slow down or stall. Without a BOV, the compressor surge slows the turbine down, which then takes longer to spool up again when the throttle is opened. With a BOV, the excess boost pressure is released, keeping the turbine spinning and thus reducing the turbo lag effect.
A BOV is usually blow off valve hook up on the intercooler pipework between the turbocharger compressor and the throttle body, ideally on the throttle body side of the intercooler. In its resting position, a spring holds the piston shut against the intake port. Under boost with the throttle open, the blow-off valve remains shut. Upon shutting the throttle, vacuum is created in the inlet manifold, this vacuum combined with nook pressure in the intercooler pipe forces the piston to open, releasing excess boost pressure in the intake system.
Blow off Valve diagram. Those are nice explanations but they don't answer the specific questions I have. For example just two bliw them. Examples like yours above only reference one. Which do I use?

You could go on tials website and they have a page dedicated to knock offs just check that out. And no "eBay" brand is good take this advice from a person who learned the hard way " do it once do it right" I will never have a eBay part in my car again.
The problem with them is they give out and you'll be slowly blow off valve hook up boost with it. Well that's annoying as hell. The guy I bought it from on this forum assured me it was real. Just means I have to buy another one Sorry to say it homie I think you got played on the wastegate I was just on tials site and yours looks like the fake 1.
Oft maybe you can get your money back just be careful next time and do a lil research I hate to see people get burned. Originally Posted by MalcolmV8. I think I'm hosed. I've been collecting parts for a while for ofc project. What's a good reputable supplier to purchase a brand new wastegate and blow off valve at a decent price? If it's not ebay ripping me off it's the guys blow off valve hook up the forum lol. I know it's just a few and not everyone but sheesh.
