    Waste Gate Actuator

    HELP, i have been told that i can not get the actuator seporate and i dont realy want the forge one.

    Does anyone have access to their actuator and can see how floppy it is when the engine is off, on my other turbo cars it has resistance even when it is not fitted to the car. The one in the A4 i can pull about all over the place and the car feels like it has no boost.

    Please help

    The actuator works of a spring and boost pressure to hold it shut, apparently ach one is individual to the turbo ont he audis, you could replace it if you liked but think youd need to ge tthe turbo off to do so

    i have a spare standard turbo actuator and manifold all in 1 piece with 68000 miles on it. I was going to keep it as a spare but im thinking of getting a s4. the turbo has the tinyest of play on the shaft but is in really good conditionive had it all checked over. if you are stuck just pm me.
