    Thanks pete, yeah i was nealy did the same, but im glad i went 4", its only a trim so was cheap enough if i didnt like it i could always get a smaller size one.
    The overal size OD is just under 4.5" if that helps.

    Thanks Graham, the standard of cars on here just seem to be getting higher and higher, Martybelfasts post saw me spend the next hour with carpet shampoo doing my driver's floor matt, came out well but his hoover certainly looks a good investment.

    Updates this evening after fitment and a drive think the R is going to like it

    lol couldnt wait so went home and got the car, Fitted it at work and went for a quick spin looks like the actuator was weak, now she boosts off the end of the gauge and stays there all the way round till she shifts Happy Days

    Oh its a 14.7 psi Actuator too.

    Hello,

    Where did you find this wastegate, please? I didn't know that Volvo was providing it separately. Is it a 300/70 19T one, please? Mine is the genuine 16T one, but I changed for an angled housing and needed to lenghten it while I installed the housing and did WG preload adjustment.

    It's amazing what you find on the net �� I'm the current owner! Bought her earlier last year. It's great to see how well it was looked after back then!
