mate i have the exact same wastegate and i too am trying too find a lighter spring. i tried turbosmart, gcg and a few others and unless i was using one of THEIR wastegates they couldnt help me.
my ebay special has a 14.7psi (1bar) spring. i have found on ebay america a guy that sell springs for our gates.
btw the spring has a 50mm diameter.
