Turbo waste gate

I have an 01 Ex with 7.3. I've done the DIY intake, 5" turbo back exhaust and have a DPTuner with 60hp,80hp,80 tow. I had to put a new turbo on a couple months ago I went with stock. Now when I get on it it sounds like the waste gate is opening more than it should. Is there an easy way to maybe keep the boost longer and keep the waste gate closed so as to not lose the power? Thanks

If the waste gate opened at 10psi wouldn't that mean you could hear it a lot? I'd bet he is hearing the sound through the open element filter.

I dont think the OP is "hearing the wastegate". Post a video and I'll tell you what you are hearing.

I just realized half my post made no sense. I bet he is just hearing the turbo whoosh that comes from the open intake. Highly doubt you are having WG issues. My truck kept hanging the wastegate and it was just a smokey pig and wouldn't spool.
