Wastegate control

Post by richcurt84 »

I'm just wondering if Hondata has the ability or has worked on the ability for wastegate control parameters? To have the abilty to control the operating range of the wastegate actuator.

This is not something we plan to do. There are several kits using after market turbos utilizing the stock actuator without the need to change the range or disable any errors. If the wastegate crank assembly is designed to operate the same as stock then it will work.

The EFR turbo wastegate actuation arm is not the same geometry as the OEM turbo.  It requires a different range of actuation to open and close the wastegate.  The stock wastegate actuator really doesn’t have ideal amount of throw to cover the EFR wastegate’s full range.

What other manufacturers do is change the wastegate crank to get the range correct.
