Turbosmart, Tial, Turbonetics. Pretty much any brand that starts with a "T"

DO NOT cheap out on good boost control. Do a google search and see how some people enjoy building new short blocks when "budget" wastegates let go and their turbos makes ALL THE BOOST

I am using 50 shipped emusa wastegate. Been on my car for almost 15k miles and never had problem with boost control. Boost cut on megasquirt is great to prevent boom if a cheap wastegate failure. Im only pushing 10psi and the softer spring of the two.
