And you will NEVER have a turbo last more than a few hundred miles. If you're going to use an anti- lag setup like rally cars, you vent the BOV air into the exhaust upstream of the turbo. Either way, expect to replace turbos with every tank of gas.

Tonyd, yes your kit DID have a wastegate. The wastegate is on the manifold, without it your turbo would keep boosting until x amount of psi and eventually blow your motor.

does a wastegate make the famous "psssh" noise a bov does?
if horsepower had a voice, it would be the sound of an open dump wastegate

big difference- at low boost levels an internal wastegate will work just fine- it's found on most greddy kits and a few others- however internal wastegates may lead to boost creep at higher boost levels (boost creep is when the wastegate is overwhelmed by boost pressure and reacts too slow, causing a few scary moments where boost is higher than it should be)- THis is where the external gate is used, and in my experience, an open external wastegate dumping straight into the atmosphere does not make the same sound as a blow off valve, it's louder, raspier and less glamorous, unless you know what that sounds means

a little flapper door inside of your turbo opens up and releases that excess boost into the atmosphere or back into the turbo

you need both the wastegate and the bov.
a bov makes a different sound from how a wastegate sounds when it is open.

just what i said, but question, since ext. wastegates have no flapper, how do they work? is it done by backpressure or something?
