Turbo wastegate opens and bleeds off exhaust to control a set boost pressure....

On road cars....the wastgate port is part of the turbo casting and exhausts down the downpipe.

A screamer pipe is additional  exhaust downpipe connected to a external wastegate...noisy on boost!!! can be plumbed back into main exhaust.
In a nutshell....

Basically, my ears are going to bleed

I wanted to to do this mainly because I wanna put those shitbox Mustangs to shame Later I will put it to exhaust system...

Slowly coming together. Some stuff needs to be done still. But getting there...

Abit offtopic but, for some reason I can see BBC Brit channel now on my TV. Theres a show, Qi, and I love it! So much knowledge and little info. Quests are brilliant
