    4 or 5 lb spring, im guessing its a external wastegate, also what are you using for a boost controller because that will be involved in hooking up the wastegate

    yes, there are different sizes of WGs,

    I would re-route the WG dump back into the piping.

    no, you can just run it straight out it doesn't need to be recycled back in to the exhaust

    It doesn't have to, but there was a good reason to "recycle" it, I can't remember it though.

    I personally just vented it into the atmosphere.
