Question Whats the Best wastegate for my truck?

Any suggestions on what wastegate to get and where to get it? Should i get the Banks big head waste gate or the BD-Power Turbo Boost Builder Wastegate?
cheapest i have found the banks one is 173. the BD is 152. is the banks worth the extra money?

I have a stock turbo afe intake and 4 inch straight pipe!

Wastegate will gain you nothing... Leave it alone.

How do you know your wastegate is bad? In all my years working on these trucks I have never seen a wastegate rod go bad...
