Default TiAL MVS Wastegate

For the ones with this wastegate; do you use the water-cooling ports or just go without it?

I heard they tend to discolor if you you don't run water-cooling port.

Or you can just go with a clear ano finish and not worry about it.

I haven't heard of anyone upgrading due to temp induced failures.

I should have google'd first. I found a TiAL rep on a forum saying it is not required. I will probably skip the water cooling and see how it goes.

I thought that only the new MVS had this feature. I know the one I just sold did not have any water ports.

If you track the car I recommend you water cool it. I wish I had a water cooled housing, but use a brake hose duct thingy instead. My WG was once the same color as my BOV.


How hard is it to run one extra SS line between the turbo and the WG?
