Do I need a wastegate

I have an 08 250 with a Sinister egr delet kit. The doc and dpf are deleted as well. My tuner is xrt pro set on "no power". From searching on the forums I get mixed results and I was just wondering do I need a wastgate since Im not turning up the power output. Truck is a daily driver and I pull our 10000 lb. camper and a gooseneck occassionally. I dont drive the truck hard at all. The worst it sees is the occassional towing duties and even then its not floored. Thanks in advance for any help on this matter.

I'm no expert but if your not adding fuel or nitrous its not needed. I asked before over at the army and that's what they said. Hope that helps.
