New Precision Wastegate Comparison

November 20th, 2009 Comments off

When Precision released their new 46mm Wastegate (available here), we were asked by our clients to do a side by side comparison with the Tial 44mm (available here), you are probably wondering, why not against the Tial 46mm?? and the reason is because even though Tial makes a 46mm, it is the 44mm that has the same mounting flange as Precision’s therefore if you have a header with that mounting flange already on it the decision would be between the Tial 44mm and the Precision 46mm. Below is the observations we were able to make by taking them apart, and comparing their internals.

Tial is a 44mm Wastegate that comes in a multitude of colors. Precision’s has a bit of a larger valve, 46mm, and it is only available in black. The boxes are the same size and they both come packed with the same foam material that completely protects every part from damage during shipping.

Below are the contents of the boxes the way they come, the clear difference is that the Precision comes with 3 extra springs in the box, that way you have the possibility to replace them without having to make a separate order for them.

As for the hardware, both have the banjo design, but the Precision brings an extra plug in case you don’t use one of the ports of the Wastegate and the Tial doesn’t have this in their hardware.

When side by side they look very similar, however the Precision unit is a bit smaller in height compared to the Tial.

The underside again is the same basic design, however you can see how the valve in the precision is a little bit larger (2mm) than the Tial unit.

Once apart, the precision comes standard with 2 springs, and the seat materials are visibly different, I ‘m not qualified to give a breakdown on the materials, however the structure of the seat itself is the same, and even though is hard to tell from the pictures they both use a 4 Allen key setup to hold the seat to the valve itself.

Internally the main difference is Precision uses a longer sleeve to hold the stem of the valve.

And last but not least the literature. Precision comes with a multi page full color instruction’s manual, Tial half a letter size paper printed in both sides.

Hope this can help you make an educated decision when in the market for a Wastegate.

On our way to race ADRL in Martin Michigan, we made a stop to a few metal foundries. The foundries have an ability to manufacture raw parts from your prints or design/modify prints in their engineering departments. Even when you provide your own specifications the foundries in-house engineering departments run a battery of test’s prior to “pouring metal” which allows maximum quality control through the entire development process.

Once a part has been fully designed and engineered, it is poured in the foundry before going to the machine shop. All casting patterns are developed in-house. In conjunction with 3-D solidification software, castings are produced using CNC to yield the tightest tolerances.

Aluminum and steel castings ensure consistent results from every pour. For more intricate parts or those where finish is paramount without machining, there are Lost Wax and other casting options.

Once cast pieces are verified, any parts that require finish work are moved to a state-of-the-art machine shop. All machining for castings or parts are performed in their high-tech machine shop using all CNC to guarantee repeatable machining as well as exactness of tolerances, dimensions and finishes.
