Hey folks, I need to replace the wastegate actuator on my 2016. It's stock, except for a 3 in downpipe and muffler delete. I bought it that way. My questions are, 1. Where can I find a stock replacement that won't drain my wallet?



2., are they easy to replace, and is there a video, or information on how to?



And 3., Ford is telling me that I need to replace the whole turbo at just above a thousand bucks. I hope that it can be replaced easily by myself and a few cuss words.







Any help, or directions where to go would be greatly appreciated 馃檹



Thanks in advance.

TurboSmart makes a good replacement.

There should be several videos on you tube showing how to replace the waste gate actuator.

Sorry! I posted the wrong picture. If you do decide to go with the TurboSmart wastegate, remember to get the one with the 7 lb spring!!

PS: I purchased both replacement wastegate and bypass valve from EMS (engineered motorsport solutions).

Friends, I got the 7lb wastegate actuator from turbosmart. It was installed by me in about 2 hours. Only pain in the ass is the heat shield only has 1 bolt holding on. The others wouldn't line up.馃し鈥嶁檪锔 Someday, I will have to get the turbo heat wrapped. Anyhow, thanks for the info and help. Have a Happy Thanksgiving .

I don't run the OEM heat shield. In my opinion, it traps heat against the engine block. And I to would like a turbo jacket, but for now, I'm using exhaust wrap.

Where can I find the exhaust wrap? And is it easy to install? I have a strut Tower Brace that is kind of running over the turbo area.

I got mine from eBay also, fairly cheap. Plus, I wrap it as tight as possible and keep it in place with baling or mechanics wire.
