if you can point me to a site that will refute that I am willing to look.
quick search regarding coiled springs

http://www.eatonsprings.com/atqCuttingCoilSpringsCalculations.htm

and further, a java app where you input data from a spring, and find out k or spring rate.. we dont know the properties of a waste gate spring though...
note that if you remove coil from the spring system, k increases..

and

When you cut a coil spring down, you increase the spring rate.

I was at the shop earlier, and found a .7 bar spring for a Tial.
