New wastegate

I need a new wastegate so I was going to get the banks bighead and I was wondering if it would be worth it, thanks in advance.

Check for boost leaks at all connection points of the intercooler piping, and on your up pipes and joints of the exhaust coming off the heads to the Turbo. There's several and some of them are hard to see. If you see black soot around the connections, there's your problem.

The problem is not your wastegate.

Unplug your EGPV [plug at the base of your pedestal] This will solve your boost problems but may not solve your egt problem unless you repair the problem or delete it. High EGT's and low boost = EGPV malfunction.
