you could manually open your ebpv and use some wire to hold it in place then you won't have to worry about it.

The waste gate doesn't have to do with cutting the exhaust off. It's function is to let exhaust around the turbo so as to prevent it from spinning too fast/creating too much boost. The other posts answered your actual issue but I wanted to throw some info out there.
