I think you guys misunderstand the new position of my wastegate hose. The switch I would not move, no benefit in doing this.
The wastegate hose is still before the throttle body but just moved to a point after the intercooler. It is basically in the casting right above the blow off valve assembly piston.....there was a plugged port there that I am using. It is in the same casting as the overboost switch.
Don't know if there is much of a difference in boost now, since in theory the pressure drop across the intercooler should be on the order of 0.5-1.0psi (guessing) but hey any free hp is good.
