Is this proper?

Is the next step to pull the WG and check for a sticky valve?
I hope thats not how the lines on the wastegate were hooked up.
That is opposite of how they should be.
The bottom banjo fitting at the bottom, or yellow arrow is the boost pressure line from the intercooler and the top one is vented to atmosphere.

If your was hooked up as you listed them than you are actually pressurizing your wastegate to stay closed under boost.
You want the boost pressure to lift the valve off it's seat to let some exhaust pressure escape.

I bet your car was fast!
