The stock wastegate actuator from Borg-Warner begins to leaks boost around 5-8psi. With this direct replacement you'll not have to worry about losing boost due to the weak designed actuator.
This wastegate actuator comes with a green spring installed, which is rated for (5-10psi). If you find your self looking to run more boost. Then check out the yellow colored spring,which is rated to a base pressure of 10-15 PSI, will increase the boost output of the application to a degree that will exceed the ability of the stock fuel system to maintain the necessary supply of fuel. Because of this, we must recommend that a high pressure fuel pump (HPFP) upgrade be installed, and the necessary fuel pump specific software also be utilized prior to the installation of this actuator.
This is not a complete bolt-on part, data logging and ECU adjustments are required. Although you can install at stock length and build boost sooner on a engine with a ECU upgrade.
* This part is designed for the FSI engine only. This can easily be found on the engine cover of your 2.0T VW/Audi. It will clearly be stamped FSI (not TFSI).
