the bigger, the better.... nothing like having a wastegate too small.

that said, get a 44mm, you will NEVER find the outer limits of what that can flow, basically, the LOWER the boost level, the MORE wastegate flow you need. although, its not entirely that simple, for the fact that the more boost you run, the more exhaust gas you will make, the more you make, the more you may need to vent...

forget the worry and get a decent sized one
