best place to tap for Wastegate hose

My current wastegate hose to the wastegate inlet is tapped off the inlet side of the B&B intercooler that I installed.
I max out at 0.65 bar on my VDO gage in the dash.
My question is would I benfit with a little more boost by tapping off the actual intake manifold with the hose. Reason being there must be a pressure loss across the intercooler and after the throttle body which would not get picked up currently as it is hooked up?
Anyone have a range of pressure loss across these engine items to give a feel for what to expect. I see this as free hp if it makes a significant difference.
