Hi,

Got my Abbott Racing ECU upgrade stuff through the post today.

(9000 APC/DI 2.3 Turbo)

It included the ECU upgrade, and a Wastegate actuator capsule and rod(obviously).

What would be the purpose of the Abbott wastegate actuator and rod? What does it do differently from the standard one?

Regards,

Mark

Mark,

AFAIK, the Abbott actuator will have a stiffer spring than a standard unit and will do two things:
1) provide you with a higher base boost
2) provide greater resitance to wastegate creep under higher boost pressures

HTH
