Default HKS 300zx Wastegate Actuator

Hey guys,

I found some HKS 300zx wastegate actuators on Amazon for $170 a pair. The description says 10-15psi. Does that mean the lowest possible boost is 10 even with a boost controller?

Thanks,

t.t.

you running a 300ZX turbo?
i would assume so, not very familiar with internal WG's, but i would assume that the bracket on them limits travel, but I could be way off here

Well braineck suggested replacing the Greddy actuator and used a 300zx twin turbo as an example. $170 for 2 brand new actuators isn't bad plus they're made by HKS so the quality should be pretty good.

Yes indeed, lowest boost on those is going to be 10, still might want to use a mbc to keep spoolup quick.

On a side note let me know if you buy two of them, i might take one off your hands.

you can use a spring to pretension the actuator and therefore run less psi
