Wastegate

Hi
I need a wastegate for my SPA turbo manifold... its a 3 bolt pattern... Question is what is the best out there? I've narrowed it down to 2 different wastegates... any reccommondations?

Turbonetics Evo Wastegate
Synapse wastegate

These are both a 2 bolt flange wastegates and my turbo manifold is a 3 bolt... any idea where i can get the adaptor flange???

Do you have them custom made? what are they made of? have any pics? seems really expensive but idk... i just don't want to spend like $350-$400 between the wastegate and the plate for it.... didn't want to spend more than $250 on a wastegate, but hey send me a pic! Have any of those wastegates you want to sell?

ALso what hp rating are those good for?

Could you take a pic for me? i'll probably go this rounte... i'd rather bolt up an adaptor plate than weld something... but i don't buy anything i can't see the craftsmanship of... let me know either way.

Thanks Tom
