uhh I disagree

I ******* hate internal wastegates, they suck compared to an external in every way.
Also, Ive known several ppl to have good experience with ebay wastegates, the only issues they ever have is that the springs are sometimes softer than avertised, but you can put a Tial spring in it, so it doenst matter.

A Walbro 190 would be a good choice, I would NOT leave the stock fuel pump especially if going over 10 psi. This is my opinion, I prefer to spend 80 to 100 dollars and be safe on the fuel department.


All motor I would leave the stock fuel pump.

If boosted at least a Walbro 190. Like I said thats what I would do...

Good luck, post pics once you get that project rollin...
