Do OBS 7.3s not have a turbo wastegate?

I have a 96 PSD and I can't seem to locate a wastegate valve on my turbo. Does it not have one? I know it has the EBP valve. Does that essentially do the same thing? I ask because I recently got an EDGE programmer from BD and they include a setup for bleeding off some of the boost pressure to the wastegate letting the turbo spool up a bit more. Any insight?

They have a bigger turbo like the van turbos so not needed. Also like the vans no intercooler.
