He is correct in his analogy.

But think of this way (as you have a V8 with two banks).  You have two  hoses funneling into one unit.  All of a sudden you need to relieve some pressure... you vent one hose half way up the line.  What happens at the hose with no vent?

I'd rather be a fool who is loyal to his friends than a POS that jumps ship to save face. We were wrong in the end, but nobody can ever call us disloyal. I can live with that.

I definitely understand, as that is the same question I asked. He said that the wastegate is still the easist route out of the system rather that going through the turbo.  Makes sense to me.......kind of.....lol

Exactly ... it has to be the easiest way out.  That is the point of the WG.  That is why it needs to vent both "hoses"... not just one.  You have two banks, not one.  To do it that way I would expect to see to WGs, one on each pipe from the header to the merge.

I understand.....he is confident we wont have any problems, so.........I will definitely keep everyone posted and let you know how it turns out.     Grin

Good luck with the build, looks like you are getting close 

Did you do all the body work yourself?

If that waste gate setup doesn't work(which it should for mild boost), just add another one on the other side.

I could see the two banks being an issue with a twin scroll exhaust housing turbo where each pipe has it's own path to the turbine.
