how cheap we talkin?like $100 or less.if so ebay has emusa wastegates.its a knock off company but its a good knock off company like megan.they probably last you a few years.

I wouldn't even do that. Most quality wastegates start at $300. Hell, even OBX's wastegate weighs in at $200. If you can't afford that, I would suggest looking into a used one.

right. i know the emusa ones are good a few of my friends have them.but the issue being is it being too tall..i might buy from them..luckily they are 10 miles away from me.

Bump for emusa , wish I would have known that before I bought my 1st ebay wastegate. Am running an 38mm a emusa and it works well

Don't cheap out on turbo parts. You're asking for trouble.

It depends ... Some things are hit or miss. I wont go cheap with injectors again .
The emusa wastegate holds very consistent boost.
I had my tuner add boost cut just to be safe.
If buying cheap parts gets somone on the road boosted I say go for it as long as the parts work. I got a half way deacent turbo for my civic and the rest was cheap.
I had issues with eBay injectors so I had to buy python 550s.i also has issues with the cheap $45 wastegate right off the bat but I get a $60 emusa and its been working fine.
