Turbosmart has introduced a suite of products for
the turbocharged Mustang EcoBoost.
The IWG-75 Internal Wastegate Actuator and
Kompact Shortie Blow-Off Valves help take the
EcoBoost Mustang's already impressive
performance to the next level.
Stock blow-off valves like those that come
standard with the Mustang, often suffer from a
range of problems. They are plastic, they leak, and
if you want to up the power (who doesn’t?) they
have trouble holding the extra boost. What's more,
they often fail to prevent compressor surge, even
in otherwise standard cars.
According to Turbosmart, you'll have no such
troubles with its Kompact Shortie blow-off valve.
Like all Turbosmart blow-off valves, the new
Mustang Kompact Shorties have been designed,
machined and hand assembled in-house.
Keeping the process in-house ensures high quality
and the aircraft grade aluminium alloy construction
means cracking and leaking even under increased
boost levels will seldom be an issue.
Manufactured and assembled in Australia, the
Mustang Shortie is produced with a light-weight,
brass/aluminium, two-piece piston, which is then
matched with springs, giving razor-sharp valve
response, and a serious increase in performance
over stock valves.
Available in both ‘Dual Port’ and ‘Plumb Back’
variants, the Shortie range offers something
The Dual Port design provides one plumb back
port to keep the car's computer happy, and a
second vent to atmosphere port for that trademark
Turbosmart BOV sound.
The Plumb Back offers all the performance
benefits of a Turbosmart BOV, but with quiet,
'under the radar' operation.
Turbosmart's IWG-75 Internal Wastegate
Actuators offer a significant performance boost to
the EcoBoost Mustang, in an easy-to-install bolt-
The Mustang's standard wastegate actuator is
made out of stamped steel and due to excessive
spring pre-load, has less valve travel, meaning less
accurate boost control. The use of a soft spring in
the standard actuator means it can crack open
unnecessarily at low RPMs – creating an
inconsistent boost curve.
Turbosmart's IWG-75 better controls the flow of
exhaust gas to the turbine of the
turbocharger compared to the stock
actuator, resulting in a flatter boost curve which
comes on sooner, with more stable boost and less
drop off at the end of the rev range.
The result is a more drivable car with smoother
power delivery and less turbo lag.
Turbosmart's Internal Wastegate Actuator can
cope with the high stresses and temperatures of
high boost applications for prolonged periods of
time, and is highly customisable with
interchangeable springs for a range of boost levels.
The IWG-75 Internal Wastegate Actuator allows
the EcoBoost engine to realise its full potential.
StangTV, a US-based Mustang enthusiast
magazine, dyno tested the impact Turbosmart's
Kompact Shortie Blow-Off Valves and IWG-75
Internal Wastegate Actuator on their EcoBoost
Mustang – and they were left pleasantly surprised.
