What I mean with "backpressure" is the pressure engine feels opposing the gases as they exit the heads. As wastegate essentially routes gases around the turbo, it will also make backpressure drop somewhat compared to the case where wastegate is always shut and pop-off valve is utilized to controll boost.
Thank you for your time,
