If I remember right it goes from a solenoid looking thing that's mounted to your spider and to the intake tube between turbo and air filter.... There is also a red line that goes from same solenoid to the wastegate.

Wastegate control. Uses the vacume that the turbo creates to pull open the wastegate.

Unplugging either end of it will just prevent the WG from opening sooner, but the stock WG is weak and might open up too soon anyway.
