People some times try to find stage 2 wategates from SRT4 and install Stage 1 with it! You be around 15+ psi of boost easy!

Well a better/after-market wastegate will surely be better but unless you're full bolt-on and tuned/tuning there's no need for another wga aside from the stock one.

The stock wastegate is fitted with a 10lb spring which allows you to boost and hold up to 20psi. Normally though, the first thing to go out is the diaphragm inside the wga which could lead to boost leaks.

If you insist on a different wga, my recommendations would be; Forward Motion wga or a Stage 2 wga (normally known as an srt-4 s2 wga). Don't get an AGP wga, they can cause some serious part-throttle boost.
