Waste Gate

A Waste Gate is a component in turbocharged engines designed to regulate and control the turbocharger’s boost pressure.
It’s engaged when the turbocharger generates excessive boost pressure, preventing over-pressurization of the intake system.
The Waste Gate prevents damage to the engine by diverting excess exhaust gases away from the turbocharger, regulating boost pressure.
The Waste Gate is integrated into the turbocharger assembly, typically mounted on or near the exhaust manifold.
Turbocharger engineers and designers include Waste Gates to safeguard the engine and turbocharger from excessive pressure.
The Waste Gate opens to release exhaust gases bypassing the turbocharger’s turbine, regulating and controlling the turbo’s boost level.
