"What you have to consider is that flow, at a given pressure, is determined by comprssor speed. Therefore if the wastegate is leaking you will have the same pressure but at a slower compressor speed. Less flow = less power. "
anyone care to coment on this statement. wold you say it was accurate? explain please
it was my thinking that a given compressor speed would give a certain boost and flow(in the same inlet tract) no matter whether the wastegate was leaking or not. ie the actuator reaches its predetermined level then opens the wastegate but if its leaking then it takes longer.
