View Full Version : Atomospheric wastegate

How many of you guys have your wastegates vented into the atmosphere? Do you guys like it or is it too annoying? I'm trying to decide whether to vent mine or not. A buddy's turbo gsr sounded sick(dope) with his vented. Also, what's the proper way again? underneath the car right?

Depends on if you really like it or not. I thought I liked it before, sounds mean, increase HP (less restriction), but over time I have to admit it gets on your nerve when you want a quiet ride and pull when your boost kicks in.

Best way is make a removeable adapter pipe where you can put on and off at times you wanted.

If I was to pick again, I would route it back into the downpipe because "I" prefer the quiet strong pull..

At first i liked it. But over time i wanted a quiet pull. plus for cops and just noise in general it got anoyying.

I put in into the downpipe way under the car and it sounds like a damn supra. Everyone mentions this to me so i know i'm not crazy. It will sound better to you as well.
