Modern aftermarket wastegates actually work fine, They should not have a problem with boost creep. Boost creep isn't an issue with proper manifold design. If the exhaust manifold is designed with the wastegate as a primary feature as opposed to an add on, then having super precise boost control is not really that important. Another thing to consider is the location of the pressure source reference location. That will have more of an effect on boost creep than anything.

Plus when using an electronic solenoid, you don't have the engine vacuum acting on the wastegate until the solenoid opens. It really helps control boost curve, builds torque, etc.
