what is this? ( on turbo)

so I know its hard to see in this pic but Its too dark to take one now so I circled it but its mounted on the side of the turbo and a red wire connects to it. Well the connection was rusted so the wire just came loose ( noticed it while trying to find an oil leak) the wire is just hanging there now. Im not sure how long it hasnt been making contact.

I dont think it was disconnected on purpose I think it just rusted and fell off.

it is the wastegate actuator. it opens and closes the wastegate to bleed off extra boost pressure. a lot of guys will unplug it to gain more boost. i would make sure the red hose is plugged, otherwise you are losing a little boost....
