Just wanted to tell you guys how fantastic the sound of an external W/G is... The new supe in town with the HKS t51 turbo has a HKS GT waste-gate and my god --- I literally freeze when I hear the sound absolutely sinister and the scream is unbelievable.........:D :D Worth going single just for the sound!!:flame Dev :flame Dev :D

Why do you think so many people go single. There is no replacement for the sound of external wastegates :D

I wasn't exactly blown away by mine . . . the exhaust note gets a bit "angrier" when it opens, but it doesn't get noticeably louder . . . :( :conf:

Have you got your wastegate feeding back into the exhaust, leading down to the road or side exit?

Plumbed back into the main exhaust quietens them down alot.

Wouldnt the fact youve only run the turbo at 10 psi explain it??

(last time i saw it, the dump tube was only 2" long :D )

It's got about eight inches of pipe on it, leading straight downwards. It would be a lote easier to plumb it into the downpipe but I wanted the cool sound effects I've heard so much about!
