The wastegate is just what is sounds like. Its a tiny gate that opens and excess boost pressure is blown out of it, thus wasting it. Its meant to keep from overboosting the motor.
The EBPV sounds a lot like a huge HVAC fan. Sounds kinda like a jake brake on the intake side, and just a loud *** hiss on the exhaust side.
