Decided to re-make my wastegate merger from my manifold...from just underneath my turbo flange is a pipe and runs bout 6inches to the wastegate. I want to put a 45deg bend on it to relocate the wastegate. Would that affect the way it regulates boost?

the angle out of the manifold is where problems are. if thats good then a 45 degree bend further down shouldn't be any issue
