Wastegate setting, "What's right for me?"

Posted by Robert on 11/6/2014 to ARD Blog Articles
Proper wastegate adjustment can have a considerable impact on how the Volvo turbocharger control system both develops power and maintains boost pressure across the rev range. A wastegate setting that is too low/loose can prevent full boost target from being reached and create lethargic power development. Consequently a wastegate setting that is too high/tight can cause the boost to over shoot target and, in some cases, can cause the ECU to initiate limp mode. So proper wastegate adjustment is critical for best performance and power.
