Nothing wrong at all with a Tial. Absolutely the best choice if you need to replace your wastegate.
The key word being NEED. Tial is also the most expensive and, of course, if it's the most expensive it has to be better doesn't it, and then we can also say "I have a Tial" the bragging rights alone have to justify at least half the cost.

A wastegate isn't exactly a marvel of mechanical technology, it's a one way n/c air valve, boost actuated, and controlled by a spring and diaphragm. Not exactly rocket science.

The old junk stock wastegate that we so readily kick to the curb because it's inferior to the Tial has operated flawlessly in the "Old Sled" for 30 years now, and is still working fine. A replacement from Porsche would run ya $1,600.00, if you can find one.

God !!!! You mean a Tial is actually just a cheap replacement.
