    You won't get any shielding from the high current doing the full dodge wrap like that (or from anything else for that matter), the shielding is way to uneven and sparse to have any effect at all (did you even ground it on each end?).....just wasting your time and adding weight. Legit probably made it worse as now you have a parasitic antenna to pick up all sorts of frequencies/noise and transmit them into your wiring loop... Also they used a brushed motor in it, that clearly isn't going to last very long...

    Have you guys ever thought about a pressure control release system on the intake system rather than the exhaust? That could solve the heat issue with the magnets. Also at idle, it would allow you to keep the turbo spun up for launches and such. would reduce lag.

    How do they feel about you opening that up and showing their tech? I just remember Ken block’s reaction when you said you screen shot his suspension geometry and remade it using pixels in a screenshot.

  • jampetson

    Am I right in saying, that this is basically the same end result as a vnt setup? Rather than having a variable geometry turbo, you just control gate position based on what’s required at the wheels?

    At 2:20 the guy was saying you can't map boost parameters with a pneumatic system. Uhhh whaaaaat? Isn't that what an electronic boost controller helps aid in?

    Spring loaded waste gate rely on spring tension. When that spring heats up it actually loses its spring tension. Electronic controlled is more accurate. That's why car manufacturers that have turbo engines the wastegate is controlled electronically, also get rid of that waste gate flutter(inefficiencies).

    You should just start ordering flow control valves from fisher instead of car parts at this point.

  • JK

    4:03 I'm curious why you designed it to let the boost creep, is it covered in a past video?

    • DrSwaqqinsCheckingIn

      Think because it sounds like a pretty straightfoward fix-it-now solution to the "wanting to start at low boost and end at higher boost" problem. Just a guess. Since that's what the new wastegate will let them essentially map out with a motor, rather than have it controlled by a piece of bent metal.

  • PiDsMedia

    The term is "Cross-Talk" between parallel wires, and it's a huge bug bear where ever you have switching currents (relays etc) running near data wires - such as a large solenoid pulling current past an RS-232 or RS-422 cable, or a wastegate motor pulling current past a throttle sensor :) @Rob - you could try Gold sheet for the thermal reflection characteristics, to protect the wiring ;)

    Wastegate is big enough but reversing direction is going to cause boost even wide open. Airflow doesn't like to change direction.

    That small brushed motor inside the wastgate will have to work hard. Def not n long term part as it's going finish the brushes. Pity they didn't use brushless tech. . A brushless motor 1/4 the size will give more power/ torque on the wastgate valve meaning faster reaction time and will last ALLOT longer. . Brilliant thou. .

    It would be cool if they made it so you could remote mount the motor and have a hydraulic line to move the valve.

  • Edzinator

    for shielding of electrical leads a person could use grounding strap roll, because it is flattened it is possible to open it up into a tubular housing for the wires to extend thru.

    I always use Turbosmart when I can 👍 Had two of their BOVs on my 335i and have one on my f150 3.5tt and my 15 EB Mustang. My truck sounds like a big rig when it's venting it's extra air lol
