Wastegates mounted on the exhaust side of the turbocharger are used to control boost pressure. When boost pushes open the large stainless steel valve contained within the body of the wastegate, exhaust gases are bled off, slowing down the speed of the turbine and compressor wheels. Replaceable springs contained within the top of the wastegate hold the valve head down.
