If your boost controller is hooked between the IC and the bottom of the wastegate , I don't see how you can low down the boost level under a lower pressure than the wastegate pressure itself !

Even with a stock turbo, these aftermarket headers and their wastegate plumbing increase the boost level. So it becomes worst with upgraded or bigger turbo.
