Td06-19c ...what Size Wastegate?

Recommended Posts

I have a TD06-19C on an RB20 and I have a HKS style wastegate which is 38mm in size. It wont hold boost. Have tried disconnecting the avcr and just running it from a pressure source tot he bottom of the wastegate and it still wont stay at any level. I figured it was just the crappy wastegate (it came with that wastegate/diff turbo) so I bought a new one and wanted the same one so I didnt have to change the manifold and it still wont hold boost. ahh.

Any thoughts on what it could be? wastegate too small to hold boost? I only want to run 1 bar.

Thanks.

So I asume its loosing boost??

If the wastegate is to small the turbo will actualy over boost as the excess exhaust gas can't get out of the manifold fast enough due to the hole being to small.

Id say its a dodgy wastegate design perhaps.

When i said wont hold boost, I meant it is gaining in pressure. it never holds a boost steady, just winds up from 4000rpm till I stop it.

the wastegate has held .8bar with a t3/4 turbo that was on it before, I would have thought that it would be big enough to hold / control boost with the td06 as it has a smaller exhaust housing, I do realise it would flow alot more then the old turbo but still didnt think I would have a problem with size.

I dont feel like forking out $1000 and all the hassel of taking the exahust manifold off then on again when it may not be the problem, although it is looking like it.

can anyone confirm or deny whether a turbo of this size would need a bigger wastegate or not?

or anyone have any other sujestions for me?

Thanks.

You need a larger wastegate if you are experiencing boost creep.

It may be partially due to the manifold design who knows, testing is the only real way to find out.

agreed.

search button - re wastegate sizing... but that isn the issue here.

I betting manifold too, exhaust fiding it easier to go out the turbine than down to the gate.

Always the first thing to head for with rising boost above the spring

Speaking of which, what spring is in the gate?

Or is it one of the horrid adjustable things?

I believe it has a .9bar spring. but it goes over that!

when you sat testing is the only way, test what?

it is a custom manifold. if it is the manifold, then thats a big problem! stupid car!

Thanks for your input guys, I will look into some other things and well if its manifold, then it will prob stay liek that cause im not buying a new one!

Thanks.

    • Oof, glad that it seems have gone much better than it could have. I have seen some pretty terrible tow truck handling just as a bystander. Zero fvcks given and no regard for the cars at all. Also broke down with fuel pump issues the other week as the wiring was on its way out. Roadside assistance guy used to have a Skyline and was looking at Stageas on the market. The tow truck driver also used to own a high powered Skyline and was telling stories about that. Apparently too fast to have any issues with being pulled over... Makes all the difference dealing with people who actually know their cars and care.
    • I had quite the scare last night. I was on the highway just toying around with an Audi. Right after an extended WOT pull, I lost all power. I cruised to a stop on the side of the highway and realized I had no fuel pressure. I keyed on/off a few times and could hear both pumps priming but pressure was still non existent. When you need a towing on a highway in Quebec, it's an automatic call to the provincial police. They don't mess around, they'll gladly destroy your car to get it off the highway asap. I pulled my bumper off as quickly as I could as to not have it destroyed getting it onto the truck. I got lucky as the tow driver was a car guy. He entertained the police while I finished up popping my bumper off and sticking it in my window. As we started taking off, the police drove by the tow driver to tell him we couldn't leave with the bumper sticking out the window. He pulled off on the first exit he saw, did a u turn and got right back on the highway in the direction of home lol.  With no leak insight, the only thing I could think of was a torn FPR diaphragm or a popped hose inside my fuel tank. This morning on removal of my Radium twin pump hanger, one pump hose was completely shredded and the other was on the verge of the same fate. Both hoses had swelled to double their size... I have no idea how I ended up not using submersible hose but clearly that's what happened. To make things even worst, Radium supplies submersible hose with the hanger... So either they supplied the wrong hose or I had the wrong hose laying around when I assembled it.  Looking over logs, my fuel pressure dropped to 0 roughly 10 seconds after a WOT pull. I was cruising and I'm confident the motors fine. Had that happened 10 seconds earlier, I'd more then likely be pulling the motor out. New hose arrives tomorrow, I'll put it back together then. 
    • Post 2 in this thread is my C34 with a R34 manual console, you can see it is a tiny bit different but not noticeable, and clips straight in. Only issue is you have to move the g sensor a little with the manual console.
