I suggested to have the engine running because you can verify if/when the wastegate opens by feeling the exhaust coming from the dump pipe. If the engine is not running, how will you know that the wastegate is open? I don't know your set up. I don't know that you can actually see the wastegate exhaust valve on the factory set up with the wastegate in situ. If you have a stubby after market dump pipe (like this) on your WG, maybe you can get a visual on the valve.
