Van turbo installed red wastegate line usage?

Non wastegated van turbo installed n running great but not sure if I need to plug the red line that went to the wastegate or leave it open. Anyone have any experience with this?

It would throw your vac/boost reading off . . . not a hug deal but could throw off the map sensor readings which in turn could change a lot. Just plug it
