Plus by moving the wastegate line to the intake you account for the pressure drop across the intercooler and actually operate off the actual engine boost not measured before the pressure drop in the intercooler. This may be splitting hairs, but the reason I moved mine to the intake last weekend.
I found that you could use a 1/8 inch NPT pipe elbow to fit in the intake manifold under the intercooler and run the wastegate line to it.
