External wastegate Hookup.....

Wud up everyone

So, its been three months and the evo16g is keeping me happy....BUT!

a good friend has given me a K26 made by (tripleK turbos) Turbo for free!:eek: NEW!
He scored two lucky ol mofo!

Its bigger, for sure, but this thing has no internal gate, and there is no Nipple to hook
up a vacume line on the coldside...

So it works with an external wastegate...
Can anyone advise me on external wastegate hookups between this type of turbo and
the so on.

Research shows me these are found on Audi, Porsche cars, and matched to 2.5 engines.

Please remember, its not a def mod for me, but if it has potential and worth it, then lets cook up a plan. would this type of wastegate work on the same principle as a bov vacume line hookup would work?

If they are the stock Audi turbos i'm thinking of they are crap and you'll wanna just scrap it or sell it on ebay. You'd be better off keeping your 16g in my opinion.
