General Purpose Acuator

A real way to control the waste gate. Rather than an electric solenoid , varying a pulse width of open, to control the amount of air flow , to a mechanically actuated diaphragm. The only thing would be, hope you dont melt it.

It does open up some great things for boost control. I always call boost controllers , "boost guessers". They just get kinda close at guessing the amount of boost you want. Most are so complicated to setup, no one ever gets them right. And in the case of some units, if your battery goes flat, they lose their settings, and default to "blow up" boost.

I've been wondering why the hell it has taken so long for someone to use a servo actuator on the wastegate arm. Varying air pressure to the diaphragm from the fluctuating manifold pressures is like steering marbles with chopsticks.
