Wastegates

A wastegate is a valve that controls the flow of exhaust gas to the turbine of a turbocharger.

The wastegate’s job is to divert excess exhaust gases away from the turbine – controlling the speed of the turbine and preventing it from spinning too fast.

By controlling and limiting the speed of the turbine, the wastegate regulates the boost pressure provided by the turbocharger. By preventing the boost pressure from rising indefinitely, the wastegate protects the turbocharger and the engine from damage.
