  Turbocharger with wastegate - Patent 6658846
This invention relates to a turbocharger incorporating a wastegate and wastegate actuator, and in particular relates to the manner in which the actuator is connected to the wastegate.
A wastegate valve is located in the passageway and is controlled to open the passageway when the pressure level of the boost air increases to a predetermined level, thus allowing some of the exhaust gas to bypass the turbine wheel preventing the boost pressure from rising further.
In conventional arrangements the wastegate valve is mounted on a valve stem which extends through the turbine housing and which is rotated to open and close the valve.

 THE WASTEGATE, Explaining Turbocharger components
Without a wastegate, the amount of boost that a turbocharger creates varies with the pressure of the engine's exhaust.
An internal wastegate is a component on the turbo unit itself.
We also have what is called an external wastegate (left), unlike an internal wastegate, it is seperate from the turbo unit and does not require an actuator.

 Wastegate - Removal and Installation
The wastegate discharge pipe has a flange that is bolted to the valve body with four bolts (13 mm head) and to the bracket on the torque tube by a single bolt (13 mm head).
The wastegate inlet pipe has a flange which is mounted on four studs on the valve body on the other end (just off the cross-over pipe) the inlet pipe is attach by a triangle flange (3 bolts - 10 mm).
With the inlet pipe attached to the wastegate, slide the end of the inlet pipe into the cross-over pipe flange and attach the wastegate to the mounting bracket with the two Allen head bolts.

 demo.iRPM.net Internal wastegate or External wastegate ?
An internal wastegate is built in as part of the turbocharger's turbine housing.
An external wastegate is a separate unit from the turbocharger, located on the exhaust header/manifold between the engine and the turbo.
The size of an internal wastegate is proportionate to the size of the turbo, where as an external wastegate, because it's located outside of the turbo, can be made much larger.

 Banks Turbo Wastegate | Banks Power: How a Turbo Wastegate Works by C.J. Baker
Let’s begin by describing what a turbo wastegate is. A wastegate is essentially a device that bypasses some exhaust flow around the turbine section of a turbocharger to control maximum boost.
A wastegate is usually controlled by a pressure actuator that is connected to manifold pressure.
The fix is to use a bigger spring in the wastegate actuator to hold it closed until the desired peak boost is achieved, however, that also requires a bigger actuator diaphragm to override the heavier spring when the desired boost level is reached.

The wastegate should be watching the output of the compressor with nothing interfereing with it.
Picture what would happen to the turbo rpm if you had the wastegate line at the TB and the connection at the intercooler popped off.
Of course, if the qualty of the wastegate s substandard and you have your BOV adjusted to its hardest setting you are sure to see boost spike.

 Turbochargers, Turbo, Turbonetics, Wastegate, Halmeter, Boost Controller
The VBC is installed inline with the hose that leads to the pressure side of the wastegate and the other side of the VBC is a vent.
When the VBC is in the closed (You cannot blow through it) position, all the boost pressure goes to the wastegate and you have a stock boost level.
This is the simple version and results vary with the system, the size of the hose being used, the sensitivity of the wastegate spring.

Figure 1 shows how the Waste Gate controls boost, and Figure 2 shows how the ECU controls the Waste Gate by means of the Wastegate Bypass Regulator (N75).
In your imagination, connect the outlet of high pressure from the Impeller (blue) in Figure 1 to the bottom inlet (green) in Figure 2, and the right side outlet (gray) in Figure 2 to the Waste Gate actuator (Pressure Unit) in Figure 1.

That preloads the spring that diaphragm is working against inside wastegate actuator.
The best way would be to adjust so that the max boost in a higher gear at 3500 RPM full throttle is not more than 10 psi (70 KPa).
