To wastegate or not?

I am looking at doing a little uprgrading to the stock turbo and had a couple questions. I am buying a used turbo so I can work on it and still be able to drive my truck.

I plan on doing a rebuild and adding a wicked wheel and deleting the EBPV. I was thinking about getting the non-waste gated 1.00 A/R housing, but figured I should ask on here as to whether or not having a wastegate is a good idea.

Thanks

Well if you plan on making big boost numbers you would just have to watch your gauges so you dont over boost and blow something up. Otherwise if your at stock levels id say no wastegate on a 7.3 isnt a terrible idea but thats my opinion

Well it would probably just with a tune, exhaust and intake on that turbo....anything else and I would get a 38r, which I plan on doing anyways.

You do not need a wastegate.

Well like I said, the most I will have on this setup is a tune, exhaust and intake. Anything more than that will more than likely be a 38r and probably stage 1s.
