Default Which wastegate....tial, precision, or turbosmart???

Looking for a wastegate flanged for a 38mm. Is any one any better than the other? Turbosmart seems to only come with a 7psi spring which is wayyy too little....so i dont like that i will have to spend extra money on springs with it.

Yes i did a search and didnt find what i was looking for.

You didnt look hard enough. What exactly are you looking for that you didnt find?

Just cough up the money and get a tial wastegate. They have been proven to work time after time.

Precision = hell no

The other two are perfectly fine choices

I didnt search youtube jackass. I searched the forum. And they all are within like $20 in price so thats not really the issue here.

Personal experience? Or you know of failures? If you would provide me with details or an explanation why that would be great

I like Tial myself. You know for a fact you can count on them.

Go with Tail or Turbosmart. Both are considered of equal quality so it'll come down to maybe even which one you think looks nicer?

Tial is my preference.

Oh i was just talking to a friend who has the same manifold as mine and is running a turbosmart 38mm. He said he sometimes experiences minor boost creep. He said he should have gone with a 44mm. I wonder if it may be the boost controller causing the creep not the wg. He is running a pte5857 as high as 30psi and i will be running something similar in size but not quite as high of psi. I will be at <25psi until i build the block then i will likely turn it up or upgrade to a larger turbo

I've seen the cyclic test... precision failed quickly and early. Turbosmart and TiAL performed well. I normally run TiAL

Tial is the benchmark in the industry. Everything else is second-best

So they are that bad?? I have never read any debates on the issue so i thought i would bring it up. I just want what most everyone wants....the best product for the application. And as for 38mm gates...they all roughly cost the same....i mean 240-270 is about what i found. The price difference between any one if them is not the issue. The quality of the product is. Now if i were to find a genuine tial for 100 less than anything else that would probably make my mind up for me...or vice versa with the turbosmart. But i really want to know what to definitely stay away from.
