Wastegates (External)

A wastegate enables exhaust to bypass the turbine housing. This is necessary to control the boost limit; an engine is usually tuned for a specific power demand; to overrun boost, meaning giving the engine too much oxygen may reduce efficiency (air fuel ratio may become lean) and cause damage to parts. Some wastegates are part of a turbocharger, sometimes external wastegates are fitted onto an engine to have more boost control from the cockpit.
