Has anybody used this or tuned this? I stumbled across this on Full Race, they're selling electronic wastegate conversion kits and an electronic wastegate controller that converts duty cycle% input into wastegate position (5% = fully open scaled up to 95% = fully closed). It auto-sweeps to set its own travel limits. The factory DME (or a stand-alone) controls it, you just need to retune since there's no wastegate spring or back pressure against the wastegate flap to compensate for to hit desired wastegate position. Looks like a good option for single turbo guys wanting to run internal wastegate👍 Any thoughts?

Changed the title to hopefully get some more views and thoughts😀 Only potential issue I see is unknown reliability of the controller? They have off the shelf converters for both EFR's and Garret G-series.

Just found out this works on PWM input frequencies from 50Hz up to 1kHz, so this is perfectly compatible with our 300 Hz boost solenoid PWM frequency 😀

Or maybe 250Hz? I've seen conflicting numbers... Does anybody know for sure? Either way it should work.
