Default 16g wastegate setting

So, anybody know what a 16g wastegate actuator is set for? I imagine there are a few variants out there. I have two actuators, so what could they possibly be? I've searched around, and had conflicting/difficult to translate info. Any help appreciated.

6-8 would be great. 12-14 would not. Here's hoping that one of mine is 6-8.

easy test, put some air pressure to it with a guage in line, and see how much pressure it takes to extend it

It'd be easy to test if I had an air compressor

prestavalve bike pump with a gauge, cheap (less than 20$ some places) and the presta fitting just stick the wastegate in. mine has a gauge.

I think mine is 10psi (+/-psi) the one I had before was 8psi... I think different applications had different settings. good luck trying to find it documented... all the dsm boards are is bitching about boost creep at 15psi...
