Kind of a newb turbo question here

Okay so my turbo is coming with a 1bar spring in it (i think it had a 6psi or something, but a friend told me to ask them to up it to a 1 bar).But can i still use any wg and bov? or how does this work? Do i need anything special now?

is this an internally gated turbo?

your turbo itself doesnt have a 6psi spring your wastegate does.


1 bar = 14.7 psi
